Cheesy Spanish Rice

Cheesy Spanish Ricewith Seared Shrimp and Peas

This ultra-comforting dinner mimics the flavors of one of our favorite Mexican side dishes: Spanish rice, also known as arroz rojo because of its red-orange color, which comes from simmering the rice with tomatoes and smoky spices. Here, we've stirred in shredded Cheddar for added richness and creaminess. Spice-rubbed shrimp and a bright squeeze of lime take this flavor-packed bowl from side dish to centerpiece.
