My version of Mexican Red RiceI'm sharing another one of our family favorites today. Over the years, I've had a few friends ask for the recipe and just the other day one of my sister in law's asked for it. So here it is.
Rice 3 cups
Water 4.5 cups total
Salt 1 tsp or to taste
Half of an onion
Sazon season packet
Get out your rice cooker. I bought mine off Ebay years ago for around $15 shipped. You can also use a large pot with a lid and do this over the stove if you do not have a rice cooker.
Put a little oil in the bottom of the rice cooker.
This helps prevent the rice from sticking to the cooker.
Add 3 cups of rice to cooker
Add 1 Sazon Goya season packet to rice. My local Walmart carries it.
Add 1 teaspoon of salt or to taste
Get out your food processor or blender.
Throw in the tomato, half of onion and 1 cup of water.
Pour pureed mixture in with the rice.
Add the rest of the water and stir.
Put lid on cooker and push button down to cook.
When done cooking, the rice cooker will have automatically switched from cooking mode to keeping it warm mode. Fluff rice with a fork.
Enjoy with your favorite meal. Like Chilpotle Chicken.
We serve this rice regularly in my house. We eat it as a side dish to Chilpotle chicken as mentioned above, grilled steak, beans, soup, etc. I'd love to hear if you decide to make this recipe and what you think. Thank you for your sweet comments. I love reading them. Thank you for being here.
