Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Recipe Source: hillbillyhousewife.com

Ingredients:

1 cup long grain brown rice or white rice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon each oregano & cumin & garlic powder
2 tablespoons dry onion
Dash red pepper flakes
1 or 2 tablespoons oil
8 oz can reduced sodium tomato sauce or 1 cup chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
2 cups water

Directions:

In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the oil in the pan over medium heat. Add dry ingredients. Sauté the rice and seasonings in the hot oil until the rice is toasty and slightly opaque. Add the tomato sauce and water. Stir it up and bring it to a boil. When it starts to boil, cover the pan with a good lid and reduce the heat to very low. Brown rice will cook in 45 minutes. White rice will cook in 20 minutes. Serve topped with cheese for a main dish, or just like it is as a side dish.

This is my oldest son’s favorite food in the entire world. This recipe doubles easily. Cook it in a 3-quart saucepan if you double it.

Makes 4 servings.

Variations:

To make Taco Style Beans & Rice add a 15 oz can of kidney or pinto or black beans (1-1/2 cups cooked beans) well drained and rinsed, along with the tomato sauce and water. Cook as directed.

Cook your rice. Brown your meat in a large skillet. Add taco seasoning, soup and finished rice, mix well. Add a bit of water if sauce is too thick.
