From Kermit’s Kitchen
Every now and then, Kermit wants a dish with a little spice. His Spanish Rice fills the bill. Quick and easy to fix, this dish will really perk up a meal.
1 (6 ounce) box Mexican Fiesta rice (cooks in 10 minutes). Part of the Uncle Ben’s Country Inn rice dish selections.
1/2 to 1 cup Kermit’s Cilantro Salsa. Note: Kermit’s Cilantro Salsa is spicy. The quantity used is an individual preference.
Variation: Add roasted chicken
In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients (including the rice seasoning packet that comes in the box of Mexican Fiesta rice).
Cover and bring to a boil on high.
Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes or until desired consistency. Stir before serving.
Kermit’s Spanish Rice is an ideal side dish for a chicken dinner or with grilled pork chops.
Variation: Add roasted chicken to the Spanish Rice for a hearty main dish. Add a side salad to make a complete meal.
