"Hi! How was your first day??"
"Oh, this is Camille"
"Oh, haha! You sounded just like Stephanie."
"Haha. I think today was her first day...Anyway, how do I make Spanish Rice?"
"Oh, it's easy, here's what to do:"
I took her instructions, and adapted them a little bit (I think I did a mix of what she does and what my mom does....)
PS - before you make this recipe, please note that I made WAYYYY too much rice. Why I made this much for 3 people is completely beyond me....So tread with caution....And make at least half this amount.
Brown Together (until the rice is browned and the onions are translucent):
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cups rice (I used brown rice to be healthy, but white rice is even better!)
|Rice, Onion, and Pepper browning up in oil|
4 cups water
1 large chopped tomato and the juices (or 1 can diced tomato)
2 tsp salt
Everything in the pot!
Bring everything to a boil and then reduce to simmer, cover, and cook for 30 mins
And Voila! You've got Spanish Rice!!
