Mexican Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nevada Mom

I threw this together in a pinch when my son announced to me that he needed a rice dish for his Spanish class the night before he needed it. I used what was in the house, and lo and behold, it turned out delicious!

Very easy recipe! I did add a cup of chicken stock to add to the flavor. If you want a fast easy mexican rice dish, use this one! THANKS!

  3. Add the tomatoes, water and salt (to your liking), turn heat to medium-high and bring to a slight boil.
  4. Stir, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 25 minutes (no peeking), until the rice is done.

  6. It is a bit spicy, so you may want to add (1) 14 oz can of ready-cut, diced tomatoes to make it a little milder.
