I love making arroz con cebolla. It is one of those rice dishes that I could eat all the time. I try to eat as little rice as I can but this is certainly a personal favorite. Check out my recipe for arroz con cebolla at Nibbledish.


  • 1 cup of finely diced onions
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Goya Adobo without pepper (
  • 2 cups of long grain rice
  • 1 can of onion soup
  • water

How to make Rice with Onions (Arroz con Cebolla)

  • In a pot heat olive oil.
  • When oil is hot add the onions and garlic.
  • When onion starts to look translucent add salt and adobo.
  • Turn the heat off and add rice. Mix well so that rice gets coated with the oil in that pan.
  • In another bowl add the onion soup -whatever size you have is ok- and add enough water to make it to 4 cups of liquid.
  • Add the 4 cups of liquid to the rice and mix, but not too much. You don’t want to release too much starch.
  • Turn the heat on and wait until it boild.
  • Reduce to simmer and cover. Let it cook for about 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • Enjoy!
