I promised I would post this recipe after our "Fiesta party" last week. No one could believe it was so easy and prepared in the microwave. Hope you enjoy :D
Twila's Easy Microwave Spanish Rice
1 cup rice (not instant rice) if you are watching your carbs use Uncle Ben's converted rice.
1 - 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon chicken base i.e. Tones (or a dissolved boillion cube)
1 can of your favorite salsa (I use the 7 oz Herdez Salsa Casera)
salt & pepper & chili powder to taste
in a microwave safe dish, add rice and just enough water to cover the rice, then stir in the chicken base or bouilliion). Microwave uncovered on high for 8 minutes or until water dissappears. Take out and fluff up with fork and then cover with water again. Microwave on high for another 5 minutes.
Fluff with fork - add chili powder, salt & pepper and can of salsa and stir with fork to mix.
Cook another 4=5 minutes and let stand for 5-10 minutes. I sometimes let it stand for up to 15 minutes with the lid on.
Rice should be perfect!
