Easy Spanish Rice with Beans Recipe

Today I am sharing a super easy Spanish Rice with Beans recipe that we love and make again and again. The boys love this recipe and they even help me throwing all of the ingredients in the skillet. This is also one of those one pot recipes so clean-up is super easy.

You can eat the rice on its own or wrap it up in a tortilla to make delicious dinner wraps. So yummy! I also love that beans are good for you. Beans contain a lot of soluble fiber, protein, carbohydrates, folate and iron.

Spanish Rice with Beans

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of dry rice
  • 3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 an onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cups of chicken/veggie broth
  • 1/2 a bottle of salsa (1 cup)
  • 1 cans of beans, drained + rinsed (black/kidney/medley - use your favourite beans)
  • Fresh Cilantro (chopped, about 1/2 cup)
  • Sprinkle of salt and pepper

Directions:

1) Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.
2) Add in the onion and saute until soft (about 1-2 min).
3) Add in the rice, mix with the onion and cook for about 5 minutes or until the rice gets a golden color.
4) Add in the garlic and saute for one more minute.
5) Pour in the broth and salsa on the rice (try to not add it directly onto the hot pan), add the beans, salt and pepper and stir it up. Bring to a boil.
6) Turn the heat to low and cover, rice should simmer for about 25 minutes.
7) Mix well, add fresh cilantro and serve.

You can also wrap it up in a tortilla and add some grated cheese, low fat yogurt and lettuce for a delicious veggie taco/burrito.

      From Wiki:
      Spanish rice is a side dish made from white rice, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and other ingredients.[1] It is traditionally made by sautéing the rice in a skillet until it is golden brown. Water or chicken broth are then added along with chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce.
      Although called “Spanish rice”, this dish is unknown in Spain. The term “Spanish rice” is not used by Mexicans or Mexican food enthusiasts, and its use probably stems from the fact that the Spanish language is spoken in Mexico; the dish is usually simply referred to as arroz (“rice”) in Mexico.
      It is a popular dish in the American Southwest, which refers to the dish as “Mexican rice”. The version of the dish cooked throughout Northern Mexico tends to be a more homogeneous character, often with just enough tomato and chili pepper to give the distinctive red-orange color and a smoky, garlic and onion-laden flavor. It is usually served as a side dish alongside other Mexican cuisine.

    well there you go then I didn’t know that Spanish Rice didn’t come originally from Spain! This looks rather yummy and would be lovely on a cold winter’s evening. 🙂

      Hi Cindy, I am sorry about that. Looks like the mobile theme is having difficulty showing recipes right now. You can still see the full recipe on the desktop version instead of mobile. If you are on mobile you can go to the bottom of the page and click DESKTOP version to switch over.
