How to Make Spanish Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. ***NOTE***
    You may substitute the 1 can of green chilies and 1 can of tomatoes for 1 can of Rotel, undrained. I prefer the Rotel. Both are good, however.
    I use prechopped, frozen veggies from my freezer that I prep myself. Fresh or frozen is fine.
  2. In a heavy, heated, oiled pan add onion, garlic and peppers, jalapeno. Cook until tender over med heat. Add cilantro, cumin, and oregano.
  3. Mix well and add rice. Stir to heat thru. Add tomatoes/chilies w/juice. Mix well, add water (or V-8 juice) if needed for desired consistency.
  4. Salt to taste. Reduce heat to simmer to heat thru.
  5. "Homemade is better!"
