Quick Easy Spanish Rice gluten free

 I absolutely love Mexican food! I always have. So I am so thankful I can make so much of it and it is naturally gluten free. Nothing says comfort to me more than a bowl of Spanish Rice. I have made it a lot of different ways, each unique in their own way. This one is really tasty, and really really easy to make. Perfect side dish for when you only have 30 minutes to get dinner on the table.
