Mexican Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MJMommy13

I came up with this recipe in a quest to duplicate the rice you get in Mexican restaurants. If you don't have a rice cooker just cook on the stovetop covered for 18 minutes.

Wonderful! So easy and quick. I followed the instructions and I also added just a little more liquid and served with recipe#37778#37778, small green salad and chips and salsa. One I will be making again. Thank you.
