Quick, Easy Recipes: Oven Spanish Rice

Now, some of you might be wondering why do we even have recipes on these website. Well, you might be surprised but I too eat. Albeit not with the same patience for the fine arts in cooking but I tend find a few gems that fit my cooking confidence level that I believe my follow nerdy brethren would enjoy. So I decided to create a category for these on the blog and share this gem that will surely help you to rethink that trip to your favorite Mexican food spot. Spanish Rice is delicious and easily compliments most Latin dishes as a base along with re-fried beans. This will show you the easiest way to make rice for the quick meal between games or code crunch.

Note: The chicken bullion and Goya packets are for flavor and seasoning and can be adjusted to your liking.

What you'll need (6 Servings)


1 Baking Dish

1 Frying Pan

Tin Foil (cover)


1 Cup Rice

3 Cups water

2 Packets of Sazon Goya (con culantro y achiote)

3 TSP of Knorr Chicken Flavor Bullion (Tomato Chicken Flavor also acceptable)


Mix water, 2 packets of Sazon Goya and the 3 table spoons of the chicken bullion together. I use a blender to make sure I get any clumps out.

  1. Pour the dried rice in a frying pan and set heat to med/high and stir with a light base of oil until rice is golden.

  2. Once both the mix and rice is ready. pour all of it into the baking dish and cover with tin foil as neatly as possible so as little steam can crawl out.

  3. Place in pre-heated oven of 380° F.

  4. Set a timer for 35 to 40 minutes and only check on it after or close to the time.

You should now have fluffy Spanish rice ready to serve as soon as you're oven mitts can handle the heat. Hope you enjoy.
