  • 1 (10-ounce) package yellow rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup salsa


  • Heat the water in a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid to boiling. Add the olive oil. Stir in the rice mix and return to a boil, stir in the salsa. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover with the lid. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring only once about halfway through. When tender, fluff with a fork and serve.
