Slow Cooker Spanish Rice

  • Cooking Time:

    2–3 hours
  • Servings:



2 c. bas­mati rice, or long or short grain brown rice, uncooked
2 c. chick­en broth or veg­etable broth for Veg­an, or water (broth will add fla­vor)
14.5 oz. toma­toes, diced, (I used organ­ic)
2 T. oil, olive (option­al for sautéing)
1 onion, medi­um, sautéed (can also add with­out sautéing)
1 green bell pepper,sautéed (also option­al like the onion)
Option­al veg­gies: car­rot, zuc­chi­ni and etc. (chopped fine­ly)
2 tsp. chili pow­der
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. sea salt
2 T. fresh cilantro

Slow Cook­er Span­ish Rice is a deli­cious side dish with any Mex­i­can Meal! YUM!

  1. Option­al: In a skil­let, heat oil (olive) and sauté onion and pep­per, adding the rice for addi­tion­al fla­vor.
  2. Grease the slow cook­er, and trans­fer the rice, pep­per and onion.
  3. Add the remain­der of the ingre­di­ents EXCEPT the cilantro, and stir to com­bine plus any addi­tion­al veg­gies you will enjoy.
  4. Cov­er. Cook on High for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours.

Option­al: Add any veg­eta­bles you will enjoy!

NOTE: Check­ing after 2 hours to make sure the rice is absorb­ing the mois­ture. When the rice is soft and the mois­ture is absorbed, the rice is done. If need­ed, add addi­tion­al water or broth.

Serv­ings sug­ges­tions: I like to place in a small bowl and turn upside down on the plate and sprin­kle with cilantro to make a nice pres­ence when serv­ing guests.
