Spicy Mexican Rice Recipe
Mexican Rice Recipe Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (infused with hot chiles, if you have it)
  • 1 small onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 shallots, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups of rice
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 2 green onion stalks, chopped (use the green and white part, discarding the roots)
  • 4 cups chicken broth (substitute beef broth if pairing with a beef main dish)
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup hot chile sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano (you can substitute Mediterranean)
Mexican Rice Recipe Instructions:
Begin to saute the onions in the oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add in the shallots, rice, jalapeno and green onions and stir frequently until the rice begins to turn golden. Add the broth, tomato sauce, chile sauce, cumin and oregano and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn it down to a simmer. Cover the pot and continue to simmer for 17 minutes (or longer, according to the package directions on the rice.) When rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork and serve immediately.

Mexican Rice with Roasted Tomatoes

Mexican Rice with Roasted Tomatoes
Mexican Rice Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon lard or butter
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain white rice
  • 1 fourteen oz can of beef broth with onions
  • 1 fourteen oz can of fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup water
Mexican Rice Recipe Instructions
Warm the lard or butter in a medium pot over medium heat and begin to saute the rice until the grains begin to become opaque. Carefully add in the beef broth, tomatoes, and garlic powder. Bring it to a boil and then reduce to simmer and cover. Let it simmer for 15-17 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve with your favorite dish.

Substitutions- You can add 2-3 cloves of chopped fresh garlic instead of the powder. If you don't have beef broth with onions, you can add 1/4 cup chopped onion when you saute the rice. If you don't have fire roasted tomatoes, chopped or diced tomatoes will be fine. Just make sure they do not have any additional seasonings.
