Spanish rice is a popular Mexican and southwestern USA dish that can be enjoyed as a main dish or a go-along. Our beefed up version of Garden Spanish Rice is sure to hit the spot when the gang comes home hungry.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans stewed tomatoes, not drained
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups long-grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Drain off excess liquid.
     
  2.  Add remaining ingredients except the zucchini; bring to a boil.
     
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Add zucchini and continue cooking 10 additional minutes, or until rice is tender.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This sounds very good. I will be trying it very soon. Will give a review then

Has all ingredients that I like, plus sounds quick. I'll try it. I was brought up to be polite. Sryan, you must relly like your neighbors dog.

How about leaving out the zucchini and feeding it to the neighbor's dog?

You read my mind!
