Yum! I'm never again buying mexican rice in a box from the grocery store to accompany our mexican meals at home. Easy to make - the only thing that takes a bit of time is browning the rice. I used all of the juice and 3/4 of the tomatoes from a 15 oz jar of diced tomatoes (instead of the tomato sauce and whole tomato), it worked GREAT! The only thing I would do differently is mince the onions so my kids wouldn't complain they could see them. I did have a problem with the rice sticking to the pan, but may have just overcooked it. Definitely a keeper!

Yum!!! This was so good. I liked the technique of toasting the rice before cooking it and I think it came out with a nice texture that way. I followed the recipe but added 2 jalapenos and used cherry tomatoes. I will certainly be making this again. Thanks!

The flavor was excellent but we weren't wild about the texture. Some of the rice was cooked while some wasn't so I continued cooking but it never seemed to change and just became mushy. However it was still eaten up because the flavor was super good. Thanks so much & I will probably try again...not sure what I could do differently or if I just jacked it up somewhere along the line but definitely worth another try. Thanks!!

This dish was easy to prepare and the directions were written well. I made exactly as stated, but we were a little dissapointed with the flavor. It just wasn't what we were looking for. I probably wont make this again, but thanks for sharing.

Wow, this was great! I made it in my frying pan, along putting Weight Watchers Mexican Chicken Breasts on top of it, then simmered for about 40 mins. Everything came out perfectly. Thanks for sharing this winner.

I have been trying Mexican rice recipes for years. I had given up and thought that I would always have to buy the junk in a box. This is excellent!!! It was almost as quick as opening a box and way better tasting. I did use a can of diced tomatoes in place of the plum tomatoes. YUMM
