Mexican Tomato-Flavored Rice Recipe
Make light and fluffy tomato-accented rice flavored with onion and garlic powders using this hand-me-down recipe.
This is exactly the recipe I've been looking for! Tastes like the rice served in my favorite Mexican restaurant. Nothing fancy, just simple & good! And so easy! For those who are wondering, the tomato-chicken bouillon is called Caldo de Tomate by Knorr. It's by the regular bouillon in my store.
We really like rice done with the tomato-flavored bouillon powder. (You will find it next to the chicken bouillon at the market) I can't speak to the ratio of water to rice as I used my rice cooker. Frying the rice in a bit of oil in the rice cooker and then adding the water to the correct line and the tomato bouillon. Very nice rice.
Made exactly as specified & it was almost exactly what I was looking for. This was extremely easy to put together. Next time however I will add sauteed onions & fresh garlic instead of the powders. I'm trying to find a replicated recipe of my favorite Mexican restaurants rice but having a difficult time. This is so close. Will make again and continue to tweak it.
Perfect Mexican rice. Made a serving for 25 people. It turned out perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
one of my Mexican friends taught me how to make rice & it was just like this recipe. I pull it up every time I make it just to make sure I get the measurements right. One thing my friend suggested, and I usually do, is use chicken stock instead of water in this recipe. Takes it from an 8 to a 10.
This is my family’s favorite rice recipe. Thanks to whoever posted this. It is so easy and tastes delicious.
This was so easy to prepare. I added a bit more of the seasoning to make it more flavorful but will be making it again!
This is very good! I used olive oil to fry the rice for health reasons. No other changes made and we really liked this rice recipe. It is not like any other I have had so don't try to compare it with the recipes that are spicy. There are no peppers or cumin, just a mild but flavorful rice.
Really good! I didn't have the tomato bullion, so I substituted 1 tbsp of chicken bullion and 1 tbsp. Tomato paste. It did need a little salt though, in my opinion. Overall, a total keeper, and the most like restaurant rice that I've found yet!
