Spanish Rice Pronto -

This was a rice dish my mom would make when we had steak or BBQ chicken. I loved it. As she got more into it, she started experimenting by adding a little chili power and some garlic power to the mix.

I found this in her recipe box typed on index card. (I remember typing all of her favorite recipes when I was in HS) but also it was on the side of the Minute Rice box.

NOTE: you can cook bacon for the drippings and then use the bacon, crumbled in the rice. Add some cheese and it makes a poor-man's casserole. With children, I'd either mince the green pepper and onion so small they can't see it or just use onion power.


  1. I love that you posted an original picture of the recipe from the side of the box. It looks very vintage and cool! Your style of writing has me laughing...thanks : )
