I love Mexican anything, when it comes to food. It has to have alot of flavor since my taste buds don't work well. This is my version of rice I make with my green chili enchiladas or other Mexican dishes. I cook it in my rice cooker for easier preperation. Enjoy!

How to Make My Spice Mexican Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse rice in sieve and set aside to drain. Heat EVOO in large deep skillet with fitting lid. Saute onion & bell pepper until opaque. Add rice and fry for a few minutes. Add water, tomato saauce and spices. Reduce heat and simmer covered until rice is tender and liquid is adsorbed, about 35 minutes. I use a rice cooker to cook mine.
  2. When I made this rice to go with my green chili enchiladas last night, I had no green bell pepper..but I usually add it. So the pic shows no pepper.
