Authentic & Healthy Mexican Rice

Authentic & Healthy Mexican Rice
Authentic Healthy Mexican Rice

"Mexican rice offers a perfect way to spice up a plain rice dish for a more exciting mealtime. Whether you serve it as a simple main course or as a side dish, this Spanish rice version can easily satisfy your family if you like Mexican food. I always make a big batch of it during the weekend and pair it with different proteins and veggies for several meals throughout the week. We’ll talk about many ways to enjoy it shortly. Before we get to that, let’s follow this cooking guide on how to make restaurant-style Mexican rice for a straightforward and healthy method."

Serves8

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time1 hr

Ingredients

  • 1 (28-ounce) can fire roasted whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 medium white onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1-2 red chili peppers or jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  1. Purée tomato and onion in a food processor. You’ll need 2 cups of the mixture and preserve the rest for later or for a Mexican-style chicken soup.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat avocado oil over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Toast brown rice in the oil, stirring frequently until it’s lightly toasted, about 8-10 minutes. Add chili peppers and garlic, stir until combined.

  3. Pour 2 cups of the tomato mixture and chicken bone broth into the saucepan. Stir in salt and cumin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 45 minutes, undisturbed. (Do not uncover the pot to check the rice during cooking.)

  4. Remove from heat and let it stand for 10-15 minutes. Stir in chopped cilantro and lime juice. Enjoy!
