Leftover rice…do you ever have any?
If not, why?
We always make more to have extra on hand. You already have dirty dishes so make a lot while you are already at it!
BTW- Did you know you can freeze rice?
It’s a great way to make a quick Spanish Rice.
As you may remember, we did another dish with leftover rice here.
Now if we are making Spanish Rice from the get-go, we use Daisy Martinez recipe (with modifications).
But sometimes you just need something in a quick hurry and a way to use up leftovers!
To make some very quick Spanish Rice, we added some leftover watered down tomato sauce (normally we would use diced tomatoes however we already had some tomato sauce in the fridge), cumin, and some diced jalapenos (which we also had some leftovers of).
We took the rice in a little oil and sautéed the rice. Added a little of the watery tomato sauce, cumin, and peppers. And here is what you end up with:
The next time you make rice, please make extra.
