Quick and Easy Grilled Spanish Rice

I love my grill! The obsession started after moving to Las Vegas and realizing that you can experience hell on earth, it's called Vegas at 118 degrees. If you're a long time follower you know that my husband and I did a 30 day grilling challenge last year.

It. was. awesome!!

Life changing really.

No joke, it's the best thing that has happened to my cooking since I learned how to make pulled pork in the Crock Pot.

Now it's easy to use your grill to make veggies and meat, it's another ball game to discover you can make pasta and chicken enchiladas on the grill. And that was the beauty of our 30 day grilling challenge. 

But this year I set out to make rice. On the grill.


Yes, yes I did.

And it was life changing.

My kids and my husband LOVE Spanish rice. They love it. I am not a fan. It's OK but I'd rather eat another taco or enchilada than rice.

I know, it's cheaper and more economical to eat a side of rice but it's so bland.

That my friends has changed.

This rice has tons of flavor and you don't have to babysit it. Just mix and grill and you're done.

Ahhhhhhhhh it's a mom's dream side dish.

Seriously this is the easiest rice you'll ever make.

It's the perfect side dish for my grilled green chili chicken enchiladas!


1 1/3 cup instant brown rice
1 cup water or broth
8 oz tomato sauce
1 t cumin
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t salt
disposable pie pan
aluminum foil
3-4 T fresh cilantro roughly chopped - optional


1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl except cilantro and pour into disposable pie pan.
2. Cover with aluminum foil
3. Grill over indirect heat on the grill - med/high - for 25 minutes. *****
4. Fluff up rice and serve. Top with fresh cilantro - optional

****Grill times vary, watch your rice the first time you make it. I suggest checking it after 20 minutes. You want all the liquids to adsorb.
