A really good restaurant style Mexican rice recipe that delivers that true restaurant flavor is hard to find, but this recipe may just beat the restaurant version! This rice is so good, you'll be back for more! It has just enough of a hint of spicy, and a deliciously rich tomato flavor too.
114.5 oz canfire roasted tomatoes(1 can of diced tomatoes)
1/2jalapeno pepper(or 1 4 oz can diced chile peppers - optional)
Bring a large skillet and vegetable oil to medium high, add the onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add the 3 cups cooked rice and stir to combine with onion, keep stirring for about 2-3 minutes while frying the rice.
Add seasoning: sweet chipotle chile powder and taco seasoning mix, stir it into the fried rice and onion, then add chicken broth and fire roasted diced tomatoes. Stir a bit to combine, then bring to a low boil.
Reduce heat after a low boil is reached, cover, and allow to simmer for 10-12 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
