Easy Spanish Rice

This Spanish Rice is soooooo easy.  Only a few ingredients are needed and you can have homemade rice in no time at all.  

All you do is add some rice and enchilada seasoning mix to boiling water, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.  Then, you stir in some salsa and it's done.  Quicker than a package of store-bought Spanish rice.

It's a little sticky, so it's really easy to eat with a fork, which is awesome. 

I served this rice alongside my Slow Cooker Pineapple Salsa Chicken Tacos.  Man, that shredded chicken is so good.  You have got to try these two recipes.

The enchilada sauce mix is usually found by the marinade packets at the grocery store.
