Although I must admit that Pot Scrubber's Mexican rice is still my favorite recipe, sometimes oven space is at a premium and the rice needs to be fully stovetop-made. In those instances, I have my backup stovetop recipe. I think this may replace my backup stovetop recipe, since it produces equally good results with a similar but less fiddly procedure. This produces a nice, lightly-tomato-flavored rice, not too dry, not gloppy at all, and frozen peas/corn/diced carrots could be added if veggies are desired. If you tend to stick with packaged Mexican rice instead of freshly-made for convenience, I think you might find that the slight amount of extra effort needed for a recipe like this is worth the payoff in flavor. Also, this rice reheats well in the microwave if need be. Just place in a covered dish, and sprinkle it with a bit of water before reheating. Thanks for posting -- this will be a definite repeat for us!

Super tasty! It was very flavorful, very easy, and by far the best rice I've ever made. Even the picky husband enjoyed it.

Great recipe! It was quick and easy! I cheated and used Rotel instead of fresh tomatoes but it turned out great. I also added a tsp of cumin and coriander powder.
