I got this recipe from Marcela Valladolid, who hosts Mexican Made Easy on Foodnetwork. I love Mexican rice, and this is really tasty. I am posting this as it was written, but keep in mind it does make quite a bit of rice! This is really easy to tweak as long as you follow the golden rule of rice: 1 cup rice to 2 cups liquid (1 cup brown rice to 2 1/4 cups liquid). Sometimes if I'm in a hurry I will use a small can of tomato puree OR one can of diced tomatoes and chiles instead of the fresh tomatoes. But now that it is Summer and the tomatoes are so good I can't skip that step! Hope you like it!!!
