How to Make Pink Rice
- 1First put your cubes in a bowl with a small amount of water and put in microwave long enough to melt cubes.Remove and stir till all dissolved.
- 2Put enough oil to coat bottom of dutch oven.
- 3Add your cup of rice to heated oil and stir fry it till appears translucent.
- 4Now add your dissolved cubes mixture to the rice and stir.
- 5Add your 3 cups of chicken broth and cumin,zest and lime juice.Stir
- 6If you would like to add meat to this, now is the time,I use chopped chicken with this.If using add and stir.
- 7You can stir this only till it comes to a boil,when this happens you put the lid on and turn fire to low.
- 8Let it cook till all the liquid evaporates(you can tell this by using a fork to center and push the rice aside),taste and see if rice is done if not to your liking then add either more broth or water a small amount at a time till its done.You still do not stir.
- 9Turn fire off when done and let sit for at least 5 minutes, then you can fluff your rice.
- 10*This is just the basics for this rice,you can add rotel,green chilis,hamburger,onion what ever you like in your spanish rice.
