sbjonasI did as DrgnHrt suggested and used Rotel (undrained) and reduced the chicken stock. I also added 1 tsp cumin. We loved the rice and the ease of prep, but will probably reduce/eliminate the cumin next time. May also eliminate the butter - not sure it's worth the fact/cals for the added flavor/texture once you have all of the flavor from the Rotel, etc.2y ago
JRowlerGreat tasting and really simple to make. My staple recipe for Mexican Rice, hands down! My daughter is known to sneak into the kitchen and steal a spoonful or two after dinner if there is any left :)3y ago
rmandervilleReally easy to make and really tasty! I added a can of tomatoes to the recipe.4y ago
DrgnHrtI used a can of Rotel for the tomatoes/peppers, leaving out about 1/2 cup of broth. Also didn't have any broth so I used water and added a bouillon cube and it worked beautifully. I also added about 1 tsp of cumin just because I like the added flavor in Mexican dishes. Very easy dish that I will definitely be preparing again!5y ago
