Easy Mexican Rice

7:30 AM

I've tried A LOT of rice recipes. Some have turned out well, others... not so much. This is by far my favorite rice recipe I've found and perfected. It's a perfect addition to that weekly Mexican meal!

3TBS of Olive Oil
1 cup of brown rice (long grain)
1tsp of minced garlic
1/2tsp of kosher salt
1/2tsp cumin
1/2cup of tomato sauce
14oz of chicken broth

In a decent sized deep pot. Heat olive oil.
Add rice and cook till slightly brown. Stirring every so often so not to burn the rice to the pan.
Next, add garlic, salt, and cumin and cook till fragrant (about 2-3minutes).
Then add the tomato sauce and chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
Stir and cover and cook till the liquid is absorbed. Check on it and stir from time to time.


  1. This looks great! I make tacos once a week and I usually make plain brown rice. I will definitely give this a try!
