Refried beans and Spanish rice, a.k.a. Mexican rice, are an inseparable combination in burritos or as a side dish. A purée of fresh tomatoes, garlic, chicken broth, and onion is added to toasted long-grain white rice, and as the rice cooks, it absorbs the mixture. Serve this fluffy, flavorful rice dish alongside Mexican favorites like cheesy Chiles Rellenos or Chicken Fajitas.
