Mom’s Spanish Rice
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
Just wanted to add didn’t use ketchup no chili powder ! I used canned tomatoes or tomato juice and I use raw rice or minute rice and bake in the oven with tenderized round steak or cube steaks some low and slow cut of meat !
You seem to contradict yourself, you say spanish rice has saffron and mexican rice has cumin. Your recipe has cumin and no saffron. Surely it is mexican, not spanish rice?
Ann in Australia, answering your review. I would not use ketchup. I would puree a can of tomatoes or purchase tomato puree, if available. The ketchup would give it a different flavor. Sorry to be late in answering this - just saw it today.
Great recipe!! I usually make it as written for a meal but also make it without the meat for a side dish to fajitas. Joyce Moynihan, Volunteer Field Editor.
Enjoying your recipes, we haven’t made this one. We are in Australia. Is the tomato sauce a tomato purée or passata? (I believe we call tomato sauce, what you call ketchup) So confused as to what this translates for Aussies.

This is my second time making this recipe. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. I would have done the same again but was out of regular diced tomatoes. I had a 10 ounce can of Rotel diced tomatoes, so I used that. To make up for the other 5 ounces of diced tomatoes, I used a half cup of mild salsa. Oh my, it was delicious! I highly recommend this recipe as written and as revised. We like spicy, so these substitutions were perfect for us. Thanks, Joan. This is another winning recipe. Lynne
Good, but made some changes next time. We skipped most of the green pepper, added smoked paprika, more chili powder, Instead of diced tomatoes, added tomato juice to the burger mix, bring to boil, added the rice to cook in that. At the end, stirred in some crumbled bacon and fresh salsa
In all fairness...depending on the device you use to view...some ingredients are off the screen when selecting Read Recipe button...the ingredients after an ad....
This is a good recipe but there isn't a lot of pizzazz in it either. I used ground turkey rather than ground beef. It turned out pretty good but it wasn't great. The next time I make it, I will substitute a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies for the standard diced tomatoes. I think this would be good with some diced up chicken instead of the ground beef too..
