Spanish Rice Using Tomato Sauce

Since I can't eat entire tomatoes, I'm grateful for a recipe that uses tomato sauce instead of crushed tomatoes, etc. This recipe comes from Host Chelsie Kenyon on's Mexican cooking forum. Thank you, Chelsie! Please see Chelsie's original recipe here at You can make the salt nonexistent in this recipe by using no-salt tomato sauce and chicken broth.
