Easy Spanish Rice

This was quite possibly one of the easiest and yummiest things I've ever made. I like to make Spanish Rice along side enchiladas, tacos, burritos, etc. but it's often such a pain to make. Not this recipe! Just five ingredients and 25 minutes and David and I agreed that it was superb. I served this along with some enchiladas I made using this shredded pork. It was delicious.

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 of a medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups long grain white rice, uncooked
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chunky salsa (I used good ol' Pace - perfect for this type of situation)

Heat oil in a medium or large pot over medium heat. Stir in onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Mix rice into pot and stir until it begins to brown. Stir in chicken broth and salsa. Reduce heat and simmer (covered) for 20 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked.

Yay, an easy recipe for me! I am going to make this on Sunday. :)

How much did it make? Oh wait, you are a culinary guru, so let me rephrase that...
How much did this recipe yield? (or something like that)

:)

Looks yummy and easy!
I love those little white vases. I just went to dinner at a little Taqueria here in Austin and they had the same vases. Now I'm trying to find them!
Where did they come from?
