One-Pot Wednesdays: Meaty Spanish Rice

Kim Conte

A big thank you to mommamiaria for sending us one of her family's favorite one-pot recipes: Meaty Spanish Rice. To me it tastes more like chili than Spanish rice, but I'd recommend it to families because it's fast, healthy, really cheap to make, and makes a ton. In fact, we're still eating it! Read on for the recipe, then send me your favorite one-pot meal for next week!

Meaty Spanish Rice

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/2 pound ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium green pepper, chopped

2 cups water

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

1 cup uncooked long grain rice

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

Black pepper to taste

In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the ground turkey, onion, and green pepper; cook until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Add all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, about 30 minutes.
