Enchiladas & Spanish Rice

cc

*edited to add Let me preface this by saying this is my husbands plate and not mine. Mine you probably wouldn’t of been able to see any cheese on it cause I ration my enchilada very carefully. Someone has to count the calories in this house! I measure out a smidge of sour cream too.

If you haven’t noticed I adore just about anything with cheese. I also love Mexican food. Tacos & enchiladas are my favorite. Tamales are too but whenever I go to a Mexican rest. I always order a shredded beef taco and a beef enchilada.

I was updating my blog’s sidebar yesterday and putting in more pics and going over stuff and by golly I inspired myself! LOL I was putting up a picture of my home made enchilada sauce and I said, “That looks good!”

How to make Spanish Rice


Ingredients

1 large onion

1 large green bell pepper

3 cloves garlic

1 lb of white rice

2 cans of tomato sauce(8 oz)

salt to taste

Instructions

Saute chopped onions and chopped bell pepper in light oil. Add rice to it in a large frying pan. Stir in 2 cans of tomato sauce and salt. Fill water to rim of pan. Put lid on and simmer at medium heat for 20 minutes until rice is soft and tasty.

That is my moms spanish rice recipe as she has it written down. I usually use brown rice which is different cause you need to cook it for about 50 minutes and then maybe add more water, maybe not. It is very touchy and sometimes it will turn out perfect for me and sometimes it won’t lol I usually add a bunch of tomato on top the last 20 minutes or so or some broccoli and cauliflour.  But if you are new to this, just stick with the first recipe.  😉 These are some pictures I took recently.
