    acerast's Note:

    When we cook Tex-Mex this recipe from Cheryl and Bill Jamison is the one we use. It is a fantastic side dish that has it's own wonderful flavor - one that complements and doesn't compete with grilled meats, burritos, stews, tacos....whatever we serve.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, heat the oil (the Jamisons use peanut oil).
    2. 2
      Saute the onion and garlic over medium heat until soft.
    3. 3
      Add the rice, tomatoes, and chili powder; saute another couple of minutes, stirring to coat the rice with oil.
    4. 4
      Pour in the stock, sprinkle with salt if desired, and bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      Reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer the rice for 15-18 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.
    6. 6
      Remove the pan from the heat and let the rice steam, covered for 5-10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Serve with your favorite Tex-Mex dishes.
    8. 8
      I have made this ahead for a dinner party and reheated it in the oven before serving.

      This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe using olive oil and the chicken stock as that is what I had in the fridge. I also cut back on the salt to a 1/2 teaspoon. We all enjoyed this. Made for ZWT5.

      This was a very delicious rice dish. Definitely a fluffy rice. I used the peanut oil and about 3 garlic cloves. I chose to use the chicken stock. I really liked this recipe too cause it was real easy to get ready. DD and I really enjoyed this dish . Made it to go with Beef Burritos Wonderful together. Thanks for the recipe. Made for ZWT5...
