Mexican/Spanish Rice Recipe

I received this recipe from my daughter’s best friend.  This is an authentic home made recipe. Here it is:


  • 1 cup of rice (1 cup = 1 coffee mug)
  • 2 cups water or better, chicken broth
  • 1 tbspn chicken powder (or buillon)
  • 1/2 can of tomato sauce
  • olive oil

Cooking method:

  • heat pan with olive oil
  • fry the rice until golden brown (you can add onion and/or garlic before putting the rice in)
  • turn off stove & add tomato sauce, water & chicken powder … mix them well
  • turn stove on, bring water to a boil (cover with lid)
  • keep boiling (5-10 mins) until you can’t see the water anymore
  • turn off stove but keep the lid on for about 10-15 minutes
  • serve!

Tip: once the rice is fully cooked, immediately mix in some butter to add buttery taste and the shiny look.
