Easy Spanish Rice

This is something I do when I am very short of time and need a side dish for tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, burritos or some other Mexican meal.

(pictures are really bad because of course I decided to take pictures at the last moment when I was short on time)

Ingredients - salsa, cheese and cooked instant rice

And it just depends on how many you need to serve on how much. We have 2 people so I just cook 1 cup of instant rice in the microwave. Follow directions on box.

Mix in salsa just to coat it well. Usually 1/2 cup to 3/4 of cup for 1 cup of rice.

Add some cheese on top. The rice is usually still warm so will melt the cheese but if not just microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. And serve.

* Many times I also add a heaping tablespoon of taco seasoning to rice before I cook it to give it just a little more flavor.


  1. Lol! It shows we're from different continents. I'd call that Mexican rice, not Spanish. I'd call paella Spanish Rice...

  2. Dakrish - sometimes I do call it Mexican rice and paella is just paella for me.

  3. I read about this dish dear and it is not a Mexican it is typical Spanish dish which is especially made in Valencia. It looks like amazing whenever I went there I must try this dish.
