Ranch Market


Spanish rice

1 cup of rice

2 cups of water

1 tablespoon of Knorr Caldo chicken and tomato soup base.



 Put in a pot, bring to a boil, cover, simmer as low as you can for 20 min. then turn off heat, uncover and let sit for 5 minutes.




1-2 small cans of tomato sauce

1-2 ripe tomatoes

1-2 bundles of green onions

1 bundle of cilantro

2 yellow peppers (optional)

1-2 jalapenos (optional)

1 teaspoon salt (optional)





Dice up tomatoes, green onions and cilantro in a large bowl. Add tomato sauce. If you want a hot salsa add the peppers after you boil them but make sure you take the seeds out after you cut them open because the seeds will make it extra hot. I never add salt to my salsa but some people like theirs extra salty.

1 cup of Bulgur

2 cups of chicken stock


Bring to simmer over high heat, as soon as it starts to simmer, turn off heat, cover and let sit for at least 20 minutes.


Bulgur is a great source of whole wheat, high in fiber, protein, iron and vitamin B-6, plus low in fat. If you have a gluten sensitivity then you should avoid Bulgur and try brown rice instead.
