This is a Paula Deen recipe. I made these for a fight night get together we were having and my guests loved them. In fact, I wanted more and they were all gone! Hope you enjoy this easy and delish recipe. Prep time includes cooking time.
Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years!
I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray.
You can add jalapeños, hot sauce or green chilies to this to add a real kick! **edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking. I usually make these during a cooking blitz and freeze until I need them**
It was a hot Saturday in July in Texas. My friend, Courtney, had a cook-out beside the pool and grilled this delicious chicken. It was flavorful, aromatic and juicy. Perfect accompaniments would be cilantro-lime rice, black beans (just add tomatoes and garic!) and, of course, a cold brew.
Prep time is marinating time.
This recipe comes from a TOH Healthy CCooking magazine. The contributer is Katrina Lopez. There are alot of Mexican meatballs recipes here but I didn't find a chicken version so I am submitting this one.
Every year my dad would make these taquitos with leftover turkey. The corn tortillas are lightly fried in oil, rolled with turkey and sealed on a griddle and come out soft with a nice crunch with the turkey still moist and delicious. These are awesome because they are not deep fried or baked. I took over the tradition and have been making these for years. My family won't eat any leftover turkey in any other form except these soft taquitos. We look forward to these as an appetizer or a meal served with my own Southwestern Dip, Cheese Sauce, Salsa and my Chunky Guacomole the day after thanksgiving.
