2776 Speedy Spanish Rice

Mom used to make something called Spanish rice. I really liked it, but never asked her how she made it. I made a quick, close second today. My son has had a very good garden year and brought over a jar of his home made salsa and another of spaghetti sauce, plus sacks of fresh tomatoes and cukes. So here's how I made my Spanish rice, which took about 4 minutes. (One serving)

1 package of Trader Joe's frozen brown rice (3 minutes in the microwave)
3 Tbsp of the fresh salsa (more if you wish)
mixed in a small bowl with
3 Tbsp shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Pour 1/2 the hot rice over the mix, stir, and return to microwave for 30 seconds. Hmmmm. Good! (Put the rest of the rice in frig for tomorrow.)

I'll have to look for that rice...I have such a hard time getting regular brown rice to turn out right.

I mentioned that here and a reader suggested this product. I just love it. I will often fix it for lunch with some left over veggies. Really easy and very tastey. Not sticky and gooey and tough like mine!
