Spanish Rice

Spanish Rice is a nice alternative to plain rice or fried rice. It is traditionally served with Mexican food but I have used it with many other main dishes as well.

Spanish rice

2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chunky salsa

First sautee the onion in the oil. Then add the rice. When it starts to brown, add the broth and salsa. Reduce heat, cover and simmer about 20 minutes of until all the broth is gone.

Optional – add green pepper and/or  corn
