This Mexican Rice recipe is an adaptation from the PBS show Mexican
1 C. Long grain rice
3 C. Water
1 C. vegtable stock or water
Fry the rice till golden brown (this is important for the flavor). Be
careful once it starts browining, it will burn quick. Traditionally you
would do this in oil, but I do it in a dry non-stick skillet and it works
pretty good. Once the rice is golden add all remaining ingredients and
cook till the liquid is absorbed and rice is done.
The garlic, cilantro, and black pepper can be added to your taste. I just
crush canned tomatoes and don't add the liquid. You can add the tomatoes
to your taste also. If you want it redder add paprika. That is what my
mother in law adds to all her dishes to get them red.
