Yummy! I used a can of chicken broth instead of waterr, and put in cumin, garlic powder, onion powder and cilantro leaves. This recipe was perfect...the one I've been wanting for ever. Thanks for posting.
This recipe for Mexican Rice may actually be too simple. I made it word for word and it was quite bland. So I started all over again but this time I added minced garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt & pepper and a few tablespoons of salsa. It was very good. Cooking the rice in the tomato sauce gives it a tender tomatoey quality that is very enjoyable.
This was a simple recipe to make. I used vegetable boullion istead of chicken. The rice was indeed a simple orange rice. The flavor was good, but mine was a tad gummy. I think that was caused by opening the lid, so I will skip that step next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe Athenaolives!
