    Directions:

    1. 1
      Over medium-high heat, sauté onion in olive oil until tender; add rice and continue sautéing for 3-5 minutes until rice becomes opaque.
    2. 2
      Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, and seasonings; bring to boil then reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20-25 minutes until rice is cooked.
    3. 3
      Remove pan from heat; let stand covered for 5 minutes until liquid is absorbed; fluff with fork and serve.
    4. 4
      Note: My best ever success with this recipe was achieved using bacon drippings for sautéing, rounded measuring scoops of rice, and only a half can (4 ounces) of tomato sauce with water added to almost fill the can.

      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!

      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.

      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.
