Dinners Under $10 – Cinco de Mayo Recipe!

Cinco de Mayo is coming up so I thought that it would be a good time to post a low-cost and easy Spanish Rice recipe!

Rice – 1 cup dry (about 3 cups cooked)
Salsa – 16 oz
Chicken Broth – 1 can
Shredded Cheese – as much as you want!

First cook the rice. Second add the salsa and the chicken broth. Last, top with shredded cheese!

Have a great Cinco de Mayo!

if you add equal parts of rice, salsa, and chicken brother AFTER cooking the rice, wont that make a rice soup?

Use a chunky salsa. The equal parts is to the measured dry amount (1 cup of dry rice will yield about 3 cups of cooked rice). I wasn’t clear on that, but you do cook it first and add the chicken broth last. I haven’t made it in a while, but I don’t recall it being soupy 🙂
