Food For Friday: Easy Spanish Rice

This is a weekly favorite in my house! We eat mexican food at least once a week and this is always on the menu any time it is mexican night. Not to mention Cole devours it and at the moment anything his toddler taste buds will devour I will make!

This is another skillet rice just like the one that I made last week. It is actually what inspired me to cook my fried rice the way I did. I found the original recipe on Pinterest and just change it up to my liking.

Here is what you will need:

-2 Tbsp Oil
-2 Cups Instant White Rice
-2 Cups Chicken Broth
-1 14 oz can of Tomato Sauce
-1 Tbsp Ground  Cumin
(Can also add garlic and/or onion powder to taste)

-Put your oil in the skillet and let it warm. Add the rice and let it sizzle for about a minute. Then add your chicken broth and tomato sauce and stir. Add your cumin (and garlic.onion as desired). Put the lid on the skillet and let it cook at a slow simmer (typically on medium heat). Stir a couple of times to make sure it doesn't burn to the bottom. Cook for about 7-10 minutes and then remove the lid and let it sit for a couple of minute. Then EAT UP!! 

Yummo!! It is not soggy at all and that is where rice and I part ways. I hate soggy rice! I have also made chicken flavored rice the same way, just without the cumin and garlic. Maybe add some herbs or something and go strong on the chicken broth. Sometimes I feel like rice is all Cole will eat so we just go with it. I embrace whatever he WILL eat for the day. He did not used to be picky, but now that he is it wears me out! (Shout out to fellow toddler moms on that one!)

He also loves salsa! Mom-win there! 

Another MUST HAVE in our house and something we don't live without is SWEET SAUCE!! You can buy it at Price Cutter and we tend to go through AT LEAST one jar a week! Spoon a little on top of this rice and it is even better! 

Only the best!

An attempt at "cheese"

Have a great weekend and let me know if this recipe works out for you! I am always up for more tips and tricks! Now to start thinking of next week's Food for Friday. I am thinking dessert...
