Mexican Rice

Cinco de Mayo is our next party day. I love Restaurant Mexican Rice but I wanted to make it at home too. Worked on this recipe and I think it is a keeper. Hope you love it too.

Mexican Rice

1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 ½ cups long grain rice 1 Tablespoon minced garlic 1 cup onion, minced 1 small fresh jalapeno 2 ½ cups chicken or vegetable broth 1 can (14oz) Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 Tablespoon tomato paste

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and rice. Cook stirring frequently, until rice is light golden and translucent, 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove ribs and seeds from jalapenos and discard, mince jalapeno and add to the rice. Cook another 3 minutes. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil, stir and then cover with lid. Simmer 20 minutes.

Set aside and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

**To make Gluten free check the broth for flour ingredients.

Super Bowl is just around the corner. I have always said that I don’t care who wins I just want to have a party! We are doing foods from Phoenix (the host city), so for dessert we are making Churros.
