Spanish Rice Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a Dutch oven, add the water, rice, chicken base, vegetables, seasonings and butter, except the salt and lime juice. Bring the water to a boil stirring very little.
  • Cover the pan and place it in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until almost all of the water is absorbed.
  • Remove the pan from the oven but leave it covered and sitting for 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the salt and lime juice.
  • Remove the lid long enough to stir in the salt and lime juice; recover the pan and let sit another 5 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy.
