    cookingpompom's Note:

    A tomato based Mexican rice. Can be made the day before and re-heated (easy for entertaining). This resembles our favourite Mexican restaurant's rice dish that I love. If you double, add extra cooking time.

      Pink & fluffy this does resemble restaurant mexican rice. I used fresh garlic & chicken broth & followed the instructions. The rice has a smoky top note from the cumin, but otherwise is mild. Next time I might sprinkle with cilantro or green onions for serving, but I would make it again. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

      I used long grain rice, only 1/2 tsp of cumin cause it's not our favorite spice. I cooked it on the stove-top at low heat 20 minutes because my oven was taken at a higher degree. It was good, even my son liked it. It was not spicy for him. Thanks cookingpompom :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives

      Sorry, this didn't work for us. Found it bland and dry. Perhaps some diced green chilies would help? Also, as long as I had to dirty a pan to get it started, I think I would just cook it on the stovetop and save the oven. Made for ZWT8.
