How to make Spanish rice

Making Spanish or Mexican rice is quite easy and most of the ingredients are easily available. There is one more reason to make this rice, it is super flavourful and kids love it.

Most people think that you have to use spanish rice to make it but you can always make this with basmati rice or brown rice. Another ingredient we use is tomato sauce. If you don’t have sauce you can always use a can of puree or tomato salsa instead of sauce.
