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
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.
