This is one of my hands down favorite, go to recipes: easy classic spanish rice.
My mom has made this spanish rice recipe for as long as I can remember. I would sit at the kitchen counter while she toasted the rice in the skillet just waiting for it's nutty aroma to fill the room 😊.
It's so easy and is the perfect dish to literally any Mexican food dinner....So here's the thing. The ultimate spanish rice secret.
In case you didn't catch that...Toast. The. Rice.
Toast it in a little oil and it'll smell nutty and wonderful and taste SO GOOD. By the way, toasting the rice literally just means throwing it in the skillet and cooking it before adding anything else. Super easy and definitely worth it.
In my humble opinion, spanish rice isn't spanish rice unless you toast it 😁. Recipe below!Print
