Spanish Red Rice

What is Spanish Rice

Spanish Rice, which also known as "Mexican Rice", is a common side dish in Northern Mexico, as well as in the Southwestern region of the United States. This dish is not a traditional dish from Spain although the names Spanish Rice and Mexican Rice imply the same dish.


Why Is It Called Spanish Rice?

Ironically rice is not native to Mexico. It was first introduced in the 1500's when Spain initiated their invasion. Spaniard natives imported goat, chicken, pigs and cattle. Through the course their travels around the world, they spent time in Asia, and from there, brought rice to Mexico. Shis may be a reason why it is sometimes called Spanish Rice.
