1/1 Photo of Restaurant Style Mexican Rice
I love the Mexican rice I get in restaurants but could never find a recipe that came close to it ... until now!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the rice and stir until all the rice is lightly coated with the oil. Watch the rice carefully -- let it brown but do not burn (it should not turn dark brown or black). When the rice is almost all brown, add the garlic and saute for a few minutes.
- 2Add the chicken stock and the remaining ingredients. Stir and cover, then reduce heat to medium-low. Let cook for 20 minutes, then check for doneness. If necessary, let cook for up to another 5 or 10 minutes. IMPORTANT: Do not lift the lid while the rice is cooking!
- 3When the rice is ready it will fluff easily with a fork, and each grain will be split. The rice should by dry, not saucy.
