This is the greatest Mexican Rice! Takes just like the stuff you get at Mexican restaurants. Like others, I added chili powder and cumin. I also doubled the garlic, chilies, and spices. A hit with DH! My quest for the ultimate Mexican rice recipe is over. Thanks so much!
this was great! the first recipe made in my new rice cooker. i had to alter the recipe per what i had on hand plus i was cooking for more people, so i changed servings to 10, increased rice to 2 cups, used 3 1/2 cups of water with chicken and tomato bouillon powders, 3 T butter, a small onion, the whole can of green chiles, and a can of rotel instead of tomato paste. i also added some chili powder and cumin. i thought this was a great first run at my new cooker. thanks for posting, i'll be making this again!
I just bought a rice cooker for this recipe. It turned out awesome!! I did make some tweaks to it. I doubled the recipe and used 1 can tomato paste, 1 small jar of salsa, onion, cumin, chili powder, garlic, and chicken stock. Once my rice cooker was on warm i added a bit more salsa and cheese...soooo good!!!
Really good! I didn't have any fresh garlic, so I used about 2 tsp of garlic powder & added a bout 1 tbls of chili powder. I bit too gummy (wet) for my DH, but I loved it & reminded me of my favorite restaurant rice when I lived in TX. Leftovers went well in burritos the next day!
So easy & quick! Adjusted amounts for larger recipe, and it turned out well.
I followed the directions exactly and cooked it in the rice cooker...it turned out PERFECTLY!!! I have struggled with my rice cooker for months...but this recipe was easy and worked like a charm! The flavours were truly wonderful!
This was fantastic! I did add some cumin (1/4 tsp) and I think next time I will add a little Chile Powder as well. Thank you for putting this on here. It will be used again!
I made this as directed the first time around and it was pretty good, but not as spicy or flavorful as I would have liked. Thank you for sharing!
This recipe is certainly easy. I made a double batch and therefore doubled the ingredients as well as adding chili powder and cumin per others' suggestions. I think I should have tripled the garlic and chiles as we felt it could have used a little more flavor. I also think it is best consumed the day you make it.
Tried it last night and we loved it. Was so easy to prepare! Thanks so much.
