 Mexican Rice is just like they serve in the Mexican restaurants and it is so easy to make at home.  I love serving it with every Mexican dish I fix.
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 C long grain white rice
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • 1 small can tomato juice – 5.5 oz.
  • salt and pepper
  1. Heat oil in a skillet
  2. Add the rice
  3. Stir frequently and slightly brown the rice (more like, make it tan) over a medium high heat
  4. Add the chicken broth
  5. Add the tomato juice
  6. Add some salt and pepper
  7. Stir thoroughly
  8. Reduce heat to simmer and cover tightly with a lid
  9. (I ‘stir’ the mixture several times while it’s cooking by just shaking/moving the skillet back and forth so that I don’t take the lid off.)
  10. Simmer/cook for about 20 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed
  11. Once the liquid has been absorbed, turn off the heat and leave mixture alone with the lid on it for another 10-15 minutes or so
