I think I died...but didn't make the cut cuz I'm still hear gorging myself.
This was excellent and much enjoyed by everybody. I used tomato paste instead of the sauce and water and stock powder instead of the canned broth which we don't get here. I was especially looking for a rice with vegetables in it so I didn't need another side dish. I chopped about a tablespoon of pickled jalapeno and added that to the rice too. A super easy recipe that I'll be making again soon thank you.
I'm Mexican and this is the BEST way to make mexican rice!!!
I think adding veggies in Mexican rice is a great way to make it more nutritious! I used cumin powder instead of the seeds and added all the chicken broth after everything was sauteed. I also used 2 grated carrots instead of the bell pepper.
In my opinion traditional mexican rice doesnt have peas or other veggies. And you spelled it wrong, its "molcajete" not "mocajeta". I have a recipe for rice on my list its the simple recipe that i learned from my mother, and ehrs from her and so on. We are all mexican woman btw.
Thanks for posting this recipe. I always have trouble making Mexican rice and this was came out perfect for me. Made for PAC Spring 08.
