"This was my first time making Mexican rice and was really happy to have it come out very moist and flavorful. I used regular basmati rice. I served this with carne asada. Overall a very nice meal! Thanks for posting!"
"A family favorite. This is now the only way I make Mexican rice. The only thing I changed is instead of tomato sauce I just put in 2 tbsp. of tomato paste and add a tomato cut into 6 wedges."
"Wow this was wonderfull.I am glad I made a double batch as it was loved and all eaten.For starters I used 1tsp. cumin for the double batch and it seemed to be the perfect amount.Also I had a red pepper I wanted to use up I sauteed it with the onion in bacon grease.Also I was out of parboiled rice so I used regular.I also opted to use chunky salsa instead of the tomato sauce.Thanks for posting this keeper recipe."
"This was REALLY good. It went perfect with the chimichangas I made for dinner. I am trying to branch off from cooking anything from a box, and this is a great recipe to make! We all really liked it. I had never heard of parboiled rice, but was able to find it in my grocery stores spanish foods section."
"i make this at least once a week. i loooovvveee it!"
"I used salsa instead of tomato sauce because that was all I had- really good,even hubby liked it."
"This rice was addictive! I used a little salsa instead of tomato sauce, and added frozen peas and corn, plus fresh red pepper. We had it with chili. I couldn't stop eating it!"
"This is simple AND delicious! My kids are very picky but loved this rice."
"Good recipe. I added some things for a little bit of kick. I added one jar of green chilis and also one packet of taco seasoning. Also, I added a little less tomato sauce. Thank you."
"I found this recipe to have far too much tomato sauce. The rice came out almost mushy not light and fluffy, plus I had to add at least double the amount of seasonings to make it somewhat flavorful. This is fine if you need something fast, but not if you are wanting something authentic."
"Super Easy and quick!!! Great rice dish...I used 6 oz tom sauce instead of 8 and a bit more cumin and fresh garlic. WILL MAKE AGAIN!!!"
"I needed an easy mexican rice dish to go with a last-minute dinner, and this sounded like what I was looking for, since I had all the ingredients on hand. The tomato sauce overpowered the rest of the flavors, though, I would have liked more spice to come through. And my rice was still too firm after 30 minutes, but that's my fault for not being more patient with the cooking time. I may try again with less tomato and more spices."
"This was really good. I added some cayenne pepper along with the other seasonings for extra heat. Very tasty and made with items I normally have on hand. Thanks!"
"a hit w/ the fam. thanks for sharing!"
"So simple and quick to prepare! Went great with our Mexican meatloaf! I added a can of green chilies but otherwise followed the recipe. Great rice dish that will be used over and over!"
"This is a great recipe with some changes, I could not find parboiled rice so I used regular rice. I put just enough water to cover rice and bring it to a boil and let it stand for a while. Then I cook it pretty much as the recipe calls for although I put about 1/2 cup more water in it and instead of cumin I use 3/4 teaspoon medium hot green chile powder. Comes out YUMMY!!! Thanks for the recipe."
"This is a nice simple Mexican rice. I made it to go with chicken enchiladas and this recipe is a keeper."
"Very good. I had to add water as the rice did not seem to get done with the amount stated in the recipe. I also think I will try adding more onions and maybe some hamburger next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe :)"
"This rice was very good and easy. Made as a side to taquitos! I almost added green chiles but I'm glad I didn't... it was perfect as is."
"Yummy. I will be making this dish again."
