I have linked to a Mexican rice recipe several times. The more that I made this recipe the more I tweaked it to get it just right. I think that I finally have got it right.
This is very close the rice you find served at Mexican Restaurants. I took it to a family dinner recently and everyone loved it. Both of my husband’s aunts wanted to know how I made it. So, I thought that I would post the recipe.
This is really good as a side dish for any Mexican style meal.
Mexican Style Rice
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
- 2 cups chicken broth
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and add rice. Cook, stirring constantly, until puffed and golden. While rice is cooking, sprinkle with salt and cumin. Stir in tomato sauce and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
