Spanish rice Like my Great Grandpa's mom used to make

My Grandmother and Grandfather 
Love this picture from their younger years....

Spanish Rice 

from the kitchen of Sally Duran
(My Great Grandma, who got it from her mother in Law)

1 ½ C. rice
½ to 1 Can. Tomato Paste or 1 small can tom. Sauce
3 C. Water
3 Stalks Celery
*1 tomato chopped
garlic pd. To taste
Onion pd. To taste Or 1 chopped Onion
2 Tb. Chicken Bullion= 4 cubes
2 Tb. Oil

Brown the Rice in oil in deep skillet or Pot.

Add Onion if using fresh, and brown with the rice.  
Add the celery, tomato, and all ingredients to browned rice.  
Put lid on and simmer for about 20-25min over low heat.  
Do not lift lid any more than necessary

*I use 1 can of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies in place of the chopped tomato.

Hope you enjoy....
