Spanish Rice Recipe

Spanish Rice Recipe

This Spanish rice recipe is very easy to make and is a good choice to mix up your regular meal sides. Along with refried beans, Spanish rice is a must-have side in my house when we eat Mexican or tex-mex. We eat it on the side with tacos, enchiladas or quesadillas. Sometimes I even stuff burritos with Spanish rice. This side is also great with baked or fried chicken, pork chops or steak.
