Mexican RIce Recipe Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
- 1 cup long-grain white rice (or brown rice)
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 (10 ounce) can petite-diced tomatoes

- 2 clove garlic, minced
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
Prepare all you ingredients ahead of time to avoid removing the lid from the rice while cooking. This will ensure the right consistency of the rice.
In a large sauce pan, warm butter over medium heat. Saute onion and jalapeno pepper 3 minutes. Add rice and stir constantly until rice is golden brown.
Stir in remaining ingredients except the cilantro. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Stir in the cilantro and serve warm as a side-dish with any Mexican food.
