Spanish Rice Recipe | 25 Minute Recipe

I've been making this quick and simple Spanish rice for about 5 years now, tweaking it as I go. It is one of my husbands favorite side dishes, so it is in weekly rotation. This spicy side dish pairs well with Taco Tuesday, enchiladas, burritos, or Tequila night ;)

- Salt (1/2 Tbsp)

- Pepper (1 tsp)

Directions: 1. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil on medium heat and add diced onions. Saute for approximately 7 minutes or until slightly translucent.
