Spanish Rice!

Tonight, we had a taco bar.  It was an easy meal to pull together as I had made two pounds of taco beef a few weeks ago and froze half for another meal which was tonight :).  The taco bar took less than ten minutes to pull together!  I also made Spanish Rice.  It takes about 45 minutes from start to finish.  Everyone liked it, even my 7 year old!  We had a milestone tonight when my youngest asked for and ate a taco instead of a plain cheese quesadilla!  He is slowly coming out of his narrow food shell and trying an liking all sorts of food.  This makes me a happy momma!!  

Spanish Rice:

2 tbsp oil
2 cups white rice
1 small onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cups water
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute rice, onion, and bell pepper until rice is browned and onions are tender.

Stir in water and salsa. Season with chili powder, cayenne pepper and salt. Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.
