Ingredients

How to make it

  • Soak the rice in a bowl of hot water, about 5 minutes. Drain, rinse and shake dry.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the rice and toast, stirring, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, puree the garlic, onion and tomatoes in a blender. Add to the rice and cook until absorbed, about 3 minutes. Add 3 1/2 cups water, the jalapeno and a pinch of salt; cover and cook over medium heat until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat. Uncover and place a clean towel over the rice, then re-cover and let stand 15 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork; serve with the jalapeno, if desired.

    So yummy! Had this for dinner last night with some chicken burritos, loved the tomato-y flavor! Didn't put any jalapeno, since my husband doesn't care for spicy, but it was still a big hit :) Thanks for the great recipe!

    pureeing the onion, garlic and tomato really infuses the rice, and in this case, I'll take flavor over looks ;-)

    Nice recipe and the rice will taste great but it has no visual impact or texture. May I suggest that you chop the onion & tomato and fine chop the garlic and pepper. The result will not only look more interesting but will be more authentic. Thanks for the post. RJ

    Looks really good, Luisa, but what do you think about using chicken broth instead of water?

    ~HELLO~
    I am so happy to have found what I
    believe is a "5"FORK!!!!! recipe for
    'Mexican/Spanish Rice'~
    Perhaps it is the last 'step' in the
    directions~ to lay the towel over the
    Rice and let it rest!
    I am eager to try this recipe~
    Thank-you for sharing~

    How interesting! This is exactly how my mom makes tomato rice. The only thing is she doesn't add jalapeno, we don't find those around here. This is delicious recipe and again the photos are great! 5 forks
