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.
Wonderful flavor combination and they look so attractive.Use unsweetened dried Cranberries or you may substitute dried tart cherries. This will make a lovely Thankgiving or Christmas dish. Original recipe from meals.com
We like to call this summer in a dish at our house. It's not your usual zucchini casserole. It's a big hit at home and for potlucks. Never any leftovers. This will be a summertime tradition at your house also. Once you try it you're hooked!
