Amazing Mexican Rice

"I modified a recipe Mexican-style rice recipe I found on here and it turned out great. My family really loves it and hopefully you will too. The tomatoes I use are the Western Family brand. You could substitute regular diced tomatoes, but it won't have the same great flavor. (Those chipotle spices really make a difference!) You could also substitute 1 cup frozen corn for 1 can of corn."

    Great recipe and EASY! I usually have the ingredients on hand. I added 1/2 a diced chipotle pepper since I didn't have a can with them in it. I also skipped the onion bc my DH doesn't always like them. Will make again.
    This was a really easy and flavorful rice. I couldn't find tomatoes with chipotle chiles so I sub'd plain diced tomaotes and added some chipotle seasoning. Other than that made as is and it tasted like something that came from a restaurant! Made for PAC Spring 2010.

    This rice was really good! I didn't have chipotle tomatoes, so I used diced tomatoes with chile seasoning, and added a can of mild diced green chiles. I drained the canned corn before adding it, and the liquid came out just right. I also sprinkled shredded cheddar cheese on top before serving.

    This was really good. I made it yesterday to go with chicken. I couldn't get chipotle tomatoes, so I used plain diced tomatoes and added some chipotle tabasco to it. Really tasty. Mine came out a bit dry, since I didn't have canned corn, and I didn't think about the liquid in the can (recipe doesn't say to drain) when I was calculating how much liquid the rice would need. It was good enough to try again and fix my mistake tho. I used one vidalia onion and it worked out well.

    This is amazing! I agree that the Chipotle tomatoes make a huge difference. This dish will dress up any meal and it is so easy. We will me making this over and over, maybe changing up the rice type and tomato type every once in a while. Perfect recipe!
