Wow, I thought this was best Mexican Rice ever. I used the Rotel tomato with green chilis and added some extra green chilis to spice it up. This is definitley a keeper!

This was really good! After reading others reviews, I used Rotel tomatoes (about 1/2 of the can and all the juice). Since I used all the juice from the Rotel, I only used a cup of water. Also, I sauted half of a jalepeno chopped up and 1 tsp. of minced garlic with the onions. As for the seasoning I just used heaping 1/2 tsps of cumin and chili powder. The flavor turned out great!

This recipe is delicious! You have to use chicken stock instead of water, as it gives it even more flavor! Other than that, I made it as is. It's really easy too! I DEFINITELY would highly recommend!
