This Mexican rice is really good and easy to make. I really hate cilantro so I subbed fresh parsley for the fresh cilantro like I always do. The original recipe came from Tasty Kitchen.
Easy Mexican Rice
2 tbsps oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cups long grain rice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 oz) can Rotel diced green chilies and tomatoes
1 (14.5 oz) can whole tomatoes
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp Kosher salt
Fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute for 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add rice and garlic. Stie constantly making sure the rice doesn’t burn. Cook over low heat for 3 minutes. Add Rotel and tomatoes and stir to combine and cook for 2 minutes. Add broth and stir together. Add the salt and the cumin. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 10-15 additional minutes or until rice is done.
Before serving, sprinkle with chopped parsley or cilantro. Serve immediately.
Makes 6 servings.
