Meatless Spanish Rice

Ready in 45 minutes

Simple, fast and tasty side dish!

"This was so good! I couldn't eat enough of it! My husband also really liked it and said it reminded him of the rice he used to have when he lived in Guam. It was really easy to make! I didn't have any salsa so I used a cup of Rotel, but a cup ended up being a whole can. Also, I drained the Rotel before I put it in. I'm definitely making this again! And sharing this recipe with my friends."

Very easy and very tasty! I feel like it needs something added though. Maybe it's because it's meatless. I would definitely make it again!

Very good! I used mild salsa and it was a good fit for my 2 and 4 year old, not too spicy, but flavorful enough for me and my husband.

This was a hit with my family. Next time I plan to add some TVP to it to have more of a hamburger helper feel to it. Very Yummy!

Made this today and it was really yummy and really easy. Used rotel instead of salsa and lime juice instead of lemon juice. Thanks so much for sharing. Will definitely make again.

Too watery at first -- I substituted 1 8oz can of tomato paste in place of tomato sauce family loves it :)

This is becoming a go to recipe for me to make to go along with tacos, enchiladas, or chicken. It is so easy to make and you can really jazz it up by adding onion, fresh tomato, cilantro, and lime or lemon.
