I love Mexican food. Chips, salsa, burritos, enchiladas….you name it, I like it. And I really love the rice and beans that always comes along with a good Mexican dinner. A while ago, I started making this delicious Instant Pot Refried Beans recipe as a side, but it took me a bit longer to find a good Spanish rice recipe. One that wasn’t very complicated, but that tasted delicious too. This recipe is exactly that!

So easy to make on the stove and you can adjust the flavor by using different kinds of salsa. Use a hot salsa if you like a bit of kick, or you can even use some green salsa if you like a bit of a different flavor.
