How to Make Mexican Rice


  1. Cook the rice in 2 cups of water let cook until most of the water is boiled out. I usually add a little water as it cooks I like sticky rice. I also add about 1 tablespoon of butter as it cooks. After the rice is done stir all ingredients in the pot and then spread in a 9x13" glass dish and srpinkle with cheese. I also Add a little salt and pepper to the mixture. Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes
