"Easy to make rice like you get at the mexican restaurant. Cooks up in your rice cooker without any fuss, mess or stirring! Haven't tried it- but could be made on the stovetop in a covered pot."
Serving Size: 1 (181 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"Very good recipe, easy and tasty way to use rice cooker. Thanks!"
"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!!!"
"Way GOOD! Made this for a Mexican style party and was super good. I just sprinkled a layer of cumin and red pepper flakes on the top so it was not too strong. My kids loved it. It is not the same as my stove top recipe; however, both are really good. This will be my go to so I don't have to babysit the pan anymore."
"It was so easy to make and Delicious! Next time I would add corn and Kidney beans"
"I made the rice for a luncheon as a side dish for Enchiladas. I also added some peas, so the kids could get some extra vitamins and toned it down with the spice (to make it kid friendly) but we all really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting your recipe SuperSpike."
"This was easy and good. The rice was a bit too chewy, next time just a bit more chicken broth. I didn't have chillies on hand so I added a problano pepper, a jalapeno and a tablespoon of Penzys Chilli 9000. This will now be my go to recipe in my rice cooker"
"This was easy to prepare and tasted great! I made it for a potluck at work and it was GONE! Everyone wanted this recipe, so I directed them here. Thank you for sharing!"
"Loved this recipe! I used brown basmati rice from Trader Joe's and there was no gluey texture at all. Also substituted 1/4 cup tomato puree for the tomato paste with no problems. Two thumbs up!"
"I made this to go with #417945 . My rice was wet and I let it set for a long time with the lid opened and it never dried out. I'll give it another try."
"Wonderful rice! This will be my go to recipe from now on when I'm serving Mexican food. Made for Kittencalskitchen Crock Pot and Rice Cooker Game."
"We LOVE this recipe! My kids ask for it a lot. Only problem is the 4 of us gobble the whole thing up, so I can't make it TOO often ;)"
"Great recipe, super easy and fast. I luckily had all ingredients here and made as written. I'll definitely be making this one again next time I have a Mexican dish. Thanks!"
"I definitely appreciated having this recipe for my rice-cooker! The rice was perfect, only it was too hot for me. Next time I'm scaling back on the red pepper flakes."
