25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 5: Spanish Rice

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

 

Okay, now I imagine if you have been following the posts you think I have lost my marbles.  In fact, this post is a tease of a post to come on Christmas Eve.

Each New Year’s Eve since Josh and I have been married, we have celebrated the occasion with fajitas (chicken and steak), beans, Spanish rice, and the rest of the fixins.  This Spanish rice is a particular favorite of mine because it actually is easier than some of the “convenience” Spanish rice mixes I could name…and it tastes fresher.

So, no, I haven’t lost my mind.  I first found this recipe (as I did with most of our New Year’s Eve inspiration) on the-site-formerly-known-as-Recipezaar (now called Food.com).

Isn’t it purdy?

Here is the recipe:

Spanish Rice

(Adapted from Food.com)

1 (15 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

1 1/2 cups water

1 chicken bouillon cube

1 1/2 cup rice

1 tablespoon butter

2 teaspoons chili powder

3/4 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cumin

In a medium nonstick saucepan, mash the tomatoes with a potato masher until the consistency of salsa.  Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low.  Cover and simmer until rice is done (about 25 minutes).  Serve topped with cheese and sliced green onion, if desired.

And the printable for the binder:

Muffin does like this recipe (although he likes some of the other New Year’s Eve eats better).  This recipe would also make a great side dish for a Christmas Eve celebration, too.

Muffin Approved

How do you celebrate New Year’s Eve?
