Old Fashioned Mexican Rice


Old Fashioned Mexican Rice

I grew up with my grandmother and was privileged to experience her Old Fashioned Mexican Rice. Made the way it is south of the border, this rice is a staple to any taco dinner. The family will like this easy rice recipe more than the main dish.


  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1/3 cup carrots, diced
  • 2 ounces peas
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chives, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper or dash of cayenne pepper or hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup cooked enriched rice


  1. Cook tomato, carrots, peas, mushrooms, celery, onion flakes, garlic, chives, parsley, marjoram, and pepper in bouillon until celery is tender. Combine with rice.
  2. Cook until most of the liquid is evaporated or bake uncovered in moderate oven (350 deg) until liquid evaporates.
