This is an excellent authentic Mexican rice recipe (not to be confused with Spanish rice) that I make as a side dish with all of my Mexican dishes. The key is cooking the rice properly and using good quality chicken broth or stock.
All the work has really been done for you, since you begin with a store bought dressing, and just fancy it up. A bit of oregano, a smidgen of dried basil and minced onion. A teaspoon of sugar and you 're done.
If you want the yummy taste of nice slowly baked potato, but aren't patient enough, or don't have the know how to bake it in an oven, well this is for you. Give it twelve minutes, get a mouth watering, taste bud-tingling treat.
