Hamburger Spanish Rice

Spanish rice recipes are a favorite busy-day dish for my husband and me. Even though we're retired, I often work on crafts or paint right up to mealtime. —Bernice Morris, Marshfield, Missouri

    I was expecting a more flavorful sauce. Instead it tasted like rice and meat in a tomato sauce.

    Very good! I added a can of fire roasted salsa tomatoes for more flavor.

    This is identical to my Mother's recipe for Spanish Rice I have been served since a child. The only difference is the elimination of the Worcestershire. She also served it with an ample amount of parmesan cheese. The topping is a delicious compliment to the rich, tomato flavor!

    This is a fantastic recipe. Using a whole green pepper is definitely the way to go. I omit the sugar and salt and add a couple of drops of sriracha for a little bit of heat and flavor.

    My husband loved it. Simple and easy to make. Just add a side of tortilla chips and you got a meal!
