No, but the recipe I use for Mexican rice is almost that simple I think the only other things I use are sauteed garlic and onions, maybe some green pepper, and chicken broth. You can make it with salsa and rice, but you will need more liquid - water or broth.

Absolutely and it's great. Chose a good salsa that has all the right ingredients - onions, garlic, tomatoes, peppers and all you have to do is fry the rice BEFORE adding the salsa. The rice MUST be fried in oil before. Make sure to sprinkle some ground cumin in there for the authentic Mexican taste and salt and pepper to taste and you're in business. Good luck.

Yes, I have sometimes mixed a jarred salsa dip with boiled rice. It is a good tasting combination - as Dina saya choose your salsa carefully - it will do well.

Yes, I like to use the salsa that has corn and black beans in it when mixing with rice. Good luck!

The cans of RoTel make great rice!!!!! You can certainly do without the sauteed onions, garlic, peppers for the sake of making this easy. I would be tempted to choose several different flavors of salsa. Like I said, the RoTel is amazing and they already have the onions, cilantro, and lime in them!!!!! That's a BIG plus!

Like Dina says (she is the expert, I have realized), absolutely. You can either cook the rice using salsa as part of the liquid (preferred) or mix it into cooked rice. Some beans would also be a good addition if you want to bulk it up a bit, and dried pinto or black beans are inexpensive and easy to cook by the BIG potful.

Make sure you handle the cooked rice properly or you could give people food poisoning.
