Spanish Rice with Chorizo

I don't do a lot of cooking with boxed products. However, when they are on sale I pick up one or two to have in the pantry. Some nights when you get home, you just don't feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen but you do want a yummy meal. This is one of those dishes.

  • 1 box Zatarain's Spanish Rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz) fire-roasted diced tomatoes (do not drain)
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance vegan spread
  • 3 Field Roast Chorizo sausages, cut into 1/2 moons

Mix the water, tomatoes, rice mix and Earth balance in a 2-quart saucepan until well blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 25 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

While the rice is cooking saute the sausages in a tiny bit of oil. When brown, set aside.

When the rice is ready, dump the sausages in and give it all a good stir.

Serve with hot sauce if desired.
