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!
Tried it last night and we loved it. Was so easy to prepare! Thanks so much.
This rice is delish! My husband, who does not care for rice - loves this. I make a double batch because it is such a hit! Thanks so much, Food.com, for coming through BIG with this recipe!
I increased rice to 2 cups and used 3 1/2 cups of water with chicken and tomato bouillon powder, 3 T butter, a small onion, and a can of rotel with green chiles instead of tomato paste like another reviewer had done. I also added some ancho chili powder. This was pretty good. I especially like that you don't have to stand over the pot to get a perfect consistency rice. I will definitely use this method even if I decide to use different spices.
