Spanish Rice Pronto

10 ingredients

My Mom used to make this, and I found her recipe - it's from a 1968 Minute Rice calendar as September's feature. I've made a few changes though - using a little olive oil instead of 1/4 cup of fat like the original recipe, and adding 1 can of tomatoes and 1 small can of tomato sauce, sometimes I use black olives instead of green ones or both. This is a quick and hearty dinner, excellent with a salad.
