Easy Spanish Rice

5 minutes

40 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (I like onions so I used a large one)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
Add rice and onion and cook (about 5-10 minutes) stirring occasionally, until rice is golden brown and onion is tender.
Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender.
