A family favorite. This is now the only way I make Mexican rice. The only thing I changed is instead of tomato sauce I just put in 2 tbsp. of tomato paste and add a tomato cut into 6 wedges.
loved.it....no, no, no...LOVED.IT! Used granulated chicken bouillon for broth and watered down a half can of tomato paste (like 1/2 can paste to 1/2 c water, i think), as well as bacon grease for sauteeing. I screwed it up big time in the beginning by forgetting to saute the rice, but with a little creative and quick moving, I salvaged the best i could and managed to strain it all out, re-issue a wee bit of bacon grease and try again. Although I didn't saute the rice enough, I still thought it was delicious. Easy peasy and oh so yummy. Thank you.
This was my first time making Mexican rice and was really happy to have it come out very moist and flavorful. I used regular basmati rice. I served this with carne asada. Overall a very nice meal! Thanks for posting!
Wow this was wonderfull.I am glad I made a double batch as it was loved and all eaten.For starters I used 1tsp. cumin for the double batch and it seemed to be the perfect amount.Also I had a red pepper I wanted to use up I sauteed it with the onion in bacon grease.Also I was out of parboiled rice so I used regular.I also opted to use chunky salsa instead of the tomato sauce.Thanks for posting this keeper recipe.
This was REALLY good. It went perfect with the chimichangas I made for dinner. I am trying to branch off from cooking anything from a box, and this is a great recipe to make! We all really liked it. I had never heard of parboiled rice, but was able to find it in my grocery stores spanish foods section.
i make this at least once a week. i loooovvveee it!
I used salsa instead of tomato sauce because that was all I had- really good,even hubby liked it.
This rice was addictive! I used a little salsa instead of tomato sauce, and added frozen peas and corn, plus fresh red pepper. We had it with chili. I couldn't stop eating it!
This is simple AND delicious! My kids are very picky but loved this rice.
Good recipe. I added some things for a little bit of kick. I added one jar of green chilis and also one packet of taco seasoning. Also, I added a little less tomato sauce. Thank you.
