Recipe Tip

Spanish rice is an American version of the traditional Spanish dish paella. A typical paella consists of a combination of rice, vegetables, chicken, sausage, and saffron. This one-dish meal was eventually adapted to our American tastes by using familiar ingredients such as ground beef and tomato sauce, with a topping of cheese.
