    The battered fedora's Note:

    This fragrant rice is a kissing cousin to topgun's The Best Authentic Spanish Rice, retooled for those who can't (or won't) buy Caldo de Tomato con Sabor de Pollo bouillon. Easily doubled for large groups; cooking time includes a fifteen minute resting period. Heavenly flavor!

    Serves: 10



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pour rice into a deep pot and stir in enough oil so that every grain is coated. Cook rice on medium heat and stir with a spatula until lightly toasted (about 20-25 minutes). Be careful not to burn.
    2. 2
      Add onion and green pepper and cook until soft, adding more oil if needed.
    3. 3
      Tilt pot to remove any excess oil with a spoon.
    4. 4
      Add water to tomato sauce to make four cups of liquid; stir in bouillon, garlic, cumin, and red chili powder.
    5. 5
      Pour liquid mixture over rice. Stir once and do not stir again, or rice will be sticky, not fluffy.
    6. 6
      Cover tightly. Bring to a simmer then cook on very low heat for 20 minutes.
    7. 7
      Shut off heat—do not remove pan from burner and do not lift lid—and let rest for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Uncover, fluff with spatula, and let rice dry out for a few minutes before serving.
