Weekly Recipe

Spanish Rice
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1 10 oz can diced tomato & green chili (Rotel)
1 tsp taco season mix (the packets that you use to season meat)

In a large skillet (with lid) saute oil, rice and onions until the onions are brown & tender.  (about 7-8 minutes)
To rice & onion mixture add all remaining ingredients (including the juice from the Rotel can).  Mix well so that all items are incorporated together.  Cover pan and simmer for 30 minutes.  Make sure you check on the rice every now & then to make sure it's not burning.

You can serve this as a side dish with tacos, burritos or just about anything else.

This is a fast & tasty side dish that was made with items from my stockpile.  This entire dish cost me LESS than $0.25!  All items were things I got FREE from couponing!
