Spanish Rice: A first.

It's not that I have never experimented with recipes before or that I have never made Spanish Rice before. It's just that I have never experimented with a recipe and had it actually turn out edible. But for the first time ever, I modified a recipe and it turned out delicious!!! You'll have to try it.

Kymmie's Spanish Rice:
Adapted from the Pulham Family Cookbook
1 medium onion diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup long grain rice
1 16 oz. can stewed/diced tomatoes (I used the lime/cilantro style tomatoes from Western Family)
1 4 oz. can diced green chilies
2 cups water

Saute onion in olive oil until transparent (~5 min). Add rice and saute until browned (~10 min). Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to boil and simmer until the rice is cooked and all the juices are absorbed but the rice is still moist. Enjoy!!!
