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.

      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.

    The recipie isn’t showing up where can I get it?

    • Angela V — July 23, 2015 @ 7:55 pm (#)

      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.
      We are working on fixing this!

    I think this recipe would go great on our Mexican night at home.

    I’m sort of new to rice dishes but this looks good but I might add some taco seasoning or chili powder to give it a little kick

    I love it… but my husband and daughter doesn’t like Spanish Rice at all. I didn’t even put the beans in but they still just don’t like it. Arghhhh! I love how your guys seem to eat everything!
