"This is a really good Mexican rice recipe. I thought my kids would never want anything but the "Spanish Rice" that comes in a box, but as they grew their tastes matured too, thank goodness! I like to use fresh raw peas and corn kernels when possible. Try this, I think you'll like it! UPDATE: Thanks to my Zaar friends Rita and Paula, I've edited my mistake in the amount of broth originally posted to 3 1/2 cups."
Serving Size: 1 (95 g)

"Good rice and not too spicy; just the way we like it. I used red pepper instead of green, but otherwise made as written. Made 1/2 the recipe since just DH and I eat rice. Made for I Recommend Tag."
"Very good rice, made as per recipe except that I omitted the carrot and upped the green pepper. A good flavour without being overpowering, I doubled the recipe because we often eat rice and its good to have already cooked rice convenient in the fridge or freezer! Thank you, much enjoyed, made for ZWT8"
"loved this just used frozen mixed veggies in this easy good flavor"
"We thought this was a very nice version of Mexican rice. The ancho chile powder gave it just the right amount of heat and a good earthy/smoky flavor. Made for ZWT 8."
"Nice side dish! I used chicken stock and for the oregano Mexican oregano. Will make it again because it's a nice way to combine rice and veggies :) Thanks for sharing!
Made for ZWT 8 / Mexico for the Lively Lemon Lovelies"
"I absolutely love this rice! I have tried to make Mexican rice a million different ways and never feel like it's just right. This was it! Have made it twice in a week's time and will make it again! Perfect!"
"This was a nice side dish to the chicken fajitas recipe that I made tonight. I used fresh tomato from the garden and I followed the ingredient list as posted. It has just the right amount of heat. I thought it needed salt. I used a combination of beef and veal stock. Thanks for posting!"
"We love our rice and I am always searching for new ways to make it for my family. This is just what I was looking for with lots of flavor and not mushy at all!"
"A nice Mexican Rice! I added a few sprigs of cilantro and otherwise followed the directions. Next time I might add just a bit of salt. I loved the veggies in it. I'm taking this to a Mexican Fiesta tomorrow at work. ThAnks Chef PotP! ZWT 5 Viva las REynas!"
"Wow easy and delicious! I would not change a thing about this recipe. I did add some green beans I had a bit frozen that needed using up. Excellent. This was my first time using dried ancho chile powder, had to go to 2 super markets to finally get it. Glad I went that extra mile. Thank you for sharing and will make again. I served this with Tex-Mex Pork Chops, and sweet carrots. Yummy dinner we had :yummy: Made for team "Cooks With Dirty Faces for ZWT5""
"This was really simple and very good! Since I got my rice cooker I've been VERY lazy about making any rice dish stove top. For this one I sauteed the onion, garlic, and carrot and then added the rice for about 5 minutes as directed. Then I dumped everything in the rice cooker with the remaining ingredients, stirred, and cooked on the regular white rice setting. Turned out perfect! I cut the chili powder to 1 1/2 TBSP and the heat was fine for the kids (1 and 5). The 1 YO ate more than me I think! Thanks Pot Pie for yet another winner! Made for ZWT 2009."
"this was a pleasant surprise, so flavorful!"
"Lots of flavor! I didn't have peas or corn and still came out wonderfully. I also used just regular chili powder. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!"
"This was made for ZWTIII. As was pointed out by Rita, the 1 1/2 cups of broth is not nearly enough liquid to cook the 2 cups of rice. The ancho chile powder adds depth and color to the dish. For my personal preferance, I will reduce the amount of cumin next time around."
"Nice and spicy. You can make a meal out of this! I used 1 tablespoon ancho powder, red and yellow bell pepper in place of the green and I had to way more then double the water 1 1/2 cups just won`t do for 2 cups of rice. I loved the cumin in this. Thanks!"
"This was a good recipe and easy to cut in half I used green and red peppers and corn and added some jalepeno for added heat"
