Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Place jalapeno pepper on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast jalapeno pepper under the preheated broiler until skin is browned and blistered, 2 to 3 minutes per side Remove from oven and remove stem.
  4. Heat oil in a pot over medium-low heat; cook and stir rice in the hot oil until evenly browned and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Blend roasted jalapeno, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, chicken bouillon, lemon juice, and garlic in a blender until smooth; stir into the browned rice. Continuously stir mixture until rice has absorbed the liquid, 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Pour water into rice mixture, continuously stirring until liquid boils. Boil for 1 minute. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is fully cooked, waiting at least 20 minutes before removing the lid. Remove rice from heat and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Good rice, was a little crunchy even after adding and extra 1/4 cup of water. Did not use a jalapeno because I can't handle that much spice. Otherwise was pretty good.

I loved this recipe! For my taste I would use less cilantro but this is by far the best Mexican rice recipe I have tried.

I was torn on how to rate this recipe. Personally, I didn't care for this recipe. I thought it had some "heat" from the jalapeno, but, I didn't think it had much flavor. I think it needed some spices added like cumin or chili powder. I did use rotel instead of just peeled tomatoes and I do think that helped. My husband thought it was pretty good though and tasted more like rice you would get in a Mexican restaurant. The problem I did have though was that the liquid was absorbed into the rice in the 20 minute cooking time, but, even after sitting the additional 5 minutes the rice still had a slight crunch to it. I don't plan on making this again.
