I gave it another go this weekend and I'm so happy with the results. Turns out I was over-complicating it. :D Mexican rice doesn't need a ton of ingredients - but there are two important things that give it that signature taste!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 1 cup long grain rice
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
- 1/4 cup diced tomatoes and their juice
- 1/2 - 1 tablespoon taco seasoning (try my recipe!)
- 1/4 of a white onion, diced
- 1/2 of a carrot, diced
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
Feel free to add a pinch of turmeric if you want it to be crazy orange. :D You can also add frozen corn and peas in when you add the stock.
