I love the fluffy, lightly seasoned rice I get as a side dish at my favorite Mexican cantina... This rice does not have any chunks of vegetables in it and has a very light tomato flavor. It is a very "dry" rice, unlike some that you may have tried that are very wet or gummy. I have tried to duplicate it and this is my best effort so far. This simple rice goes well with spicy Mexican main dishes since it does not compete with those bright bold flavors.
