"This recipe has been told to me by my girlfriends MIL from Mexico. I had to measure the ingredients. Never before have they been measured, always a 'handful of this and equal parts of this' until it looked right. I hope you enjoy it. It has become a family favorite in our home. I am always asked to make it!"

  1. Place a pot over medium-heat heat; add oil and heat until oil shimmers slightly. Pour rice into the hot oil, stirring constantly, until rice is golden to dark brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Mix water, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and bouillon into rice. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and cover pot tightly with a lid. Leave pot covered on hot burner until rice has absorbed all the liquid, about 20 minutes. Adjust seasonings as needed.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Go easy on the bouillon, start at 1 tablespoon and work from there. You can always sprinkle it over at the end!

This recipe is awesome. I also used about 1/2 tsp of minced garlic when I browned the rice. I used a can of rotel instead of chopping veggies. Turned out good.

On my gas stove it doesn't work at all. I went ahead and cooked the rice again like you normally cool rice and it was fine.

It didn't work for me, followed directions to a T but it came out a soupy mess with hard rice :(
