Mealthy Tip

Normally rice is cooked in water and then seasoned. In this recipe broth and tomato sauce are the cooking liquid, infusing flavor into every grain of rice!

I tried this delicious Mexican rice, it is perfect for taco night! This version tastes just like at my favorite restaurant. This should definitely be your go-to, fail proof recipe.

This Mexican rice was so good, I made two batches. I served it with shredded pork tacos, also from Mealthy. It made for a perfect meal.

We put Rotel in a blender. Added .75 cup instead of .5 cup. Yum!!

I’m confused! The ingredients list says “1 cup COOKED” rice but the description talks about how the rice cooks in the tomatoes. Is it 1 cup UNCOOKED rice?? That would make a lot.
