Since my husband is both Italian and Latin we have the best of both of those worlds and cuisines! As I’ve previously mentioned we love pasta, but we also love Latin food of all kinds. And rice is a staple in our household. I shared our coconut rice recipe recently and decided to share this easy to make yet so tasty Spanish yellow rice. Heidi also loves to cook Latin food…she makes a black bean & cilantro dip that’s amazing and ceviche that is absolutely divine! Hopefully she will be sharing those recipes with us in the future!
Spanish Yellow Rice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 small red pepper, diced
1 large carrot, diced
2 garlic, minced
1 tomato, diced
2 envelopes Goya Powdered Chicken Bouillon
2 envelopes Goya Sazon con Culantro y Achiote (Coriander & Annatto)
2 cups rice (I prefer Jasmine)
3 1/2 – 4 cups water
In a large skillet, heat olive oil and sauté the onion, red pepper and carrot for five minutes until tender. Stir in the garlic and tomato and sauté two minutes. Stir in the envelopes of Goya seasoning mixes. Sauté one more minute. Add the rice and stir to combine. Pour in the water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes until rice is tender.
