Classic Mexican Rice ... Recipe

One item we really enjoy eating is rice.


On a side note we have switched to Jasmine rice due to the lower amount of glucose found in it and we prefer the taste.

The boys really enjoy Spanish Rice and were asking for it once they arrived back home.

DH said to just add ketchup with some spices to some cooked rice.

Uh - yeah, I could do that but it did not sound very tempting to me.

I stumbled across this recipe and opted to try it.

A word of warning: Do not attempt to make this recipe when you are chatting on the phone.


Er... I ended up doubling the rice and did not catch my error until well into the cooking process which had me flying around the kitchen making more chicken broth and adding in more tomatoes.

In the end we had enough to feed oh.I would say 20 people. Oops!

This is one tasty recipe that does not disappoint!

I used low salt chicken broth and canned tomatoes with chilies in this recipe.

* I purred a can of tomatoes with chilies and added that in to the rice in place of the plain green chilies.
