Helpful hints

  • Omit salt if regular tomato sauce is used instead of low sodium. The sodium content is about the same.
  • For best results, resist lifting lid from skillet when cooking rice.

Mexican Rice
elegant73 says:

I have made Mexican rice for years. You need to add 1-2 tsps. Chile powder, 1-2 tsps. Cumin, 1 tsps. Mexican oragano, and some diced multi colored peppers( about 1-1 1/2 cups). You will change your opinion.

Added 1/4 c. Picante sauce instead of tomato sauce, and fresh ground black pepper, much better than last. My husband even liked it, and he's picky!

I just made this and was very disappointed. Seriously lacked flavor. Needs some spices to boost it up. Sorry

I would recommend using only 2 cups of water. This was much too watery & took a long time to cook out. Then you would be able to taste the other ingredients.

I was disappointed in this recipe -appeared to be bland, no spicy Mexican content - I don't think I'll be remaking this one. Sorry.
