Love this recipe. I don't include salt because chances are you won't need it. Between the broth and the cheese the salt need is covered. If using as a side add a pinch bowl of salt at the table. If using as a addition to burritos grande you won't need the salt. Enjoy.

How to Make Tex-Mex Rice Rice Baby!


  1. In a small pan bring the broth to simmering.
  2. Set a large skillet over medium heat-add the oil, then the rice, onion, garlic, corn, peppers, carrot and cook, stirring, until both the rice and vegetables are light brown-around 10 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped tomato and broth.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer over medium low heat, cover.
  5. Cook, stirring every 5 minutes until done, around 20 minutes. Be careful, the last 10 minutes can go from tasty to burnt.
  6. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and cilantro.
  7. Taste and add salt if needed.
