I LOVE making meals that can feed my family for a week and one of my hubby’s faves is my Chunky Spanish Rice! It’s bursting with flavor, chunky and crispy veggies and perfect for any weeknight meal.

And my secret ingredient is my fresh diced tomatoes and tomato paste by Hunt’s! All Hunt’s® tomatoes are grown in sunny California and canned within hours of being picked and then flash steamed.
