Ahhh, the Mexican Rice. My all time favorite. Goes well with most of our Mexican dishes. Mole, Chiles Rellenos, Carne con Chile, heck I even eat it alone. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I think I’m gonna go have a bowl right about now.


1 Cup white rice

1/3 Cup chopped onion

1 Garlic clove

1 Large tomato diced

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 Cups of water

1 ½ Tbsp chicken flavor bouillon


Dice tomato and onion. Leave garlic whole. I like to put it in whole. Just make sure you take it out when rice is done so nobody bites into it :O)

Wash rice until water runs clear and set aside in colander to let dry. Chop onion and tomato. Set aside. Add a tbsp of olive oil to pan. Add rice and garlic clove to hot oil; cook until lightly browned in low/med heat. Add onion and cook until transparent.

Add tomato and cook for 5 minutes.

Add water and bouillon. Bring to boil and reduce to low heat. Heat covered for 20 minutes. This is what your beautiful and tasty end result will look like.

Buen Provecho!!

    lol some of the remarks bloggers post certainly are a bit spacey, every so often i wonder whether these people are actually read through the pieces of content and posts before giving a comment or whether they merely gloss over the content title and write the very first opinion that jumps inside their brain. in either case, it is actually useful to read sensible commentary every once in awhile in contrast to exactly the same, old opinion which i very often notice on the web.
