Mexican Rice Mix
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 10 min.
Nice change of pace and much better than any boxed Mexican rice mix we have tried. I skipped the chicken bouillon and used chicken stock instead of water instead. It was still a little salty for our taste, but definitely something we will make again.
Hi Betty,The recipe makes 3 batches that are 4-6 servings each prepared. Hope that clarifies.Sue StetzelOnline Community / Field Editor ManagerTaste of Home Magazine
Confusing - says it makes 12-18 servings by prep time. And then at the end of prepare ric it states yield is 4-6 servings? ????
I enjoyed the onions and peppers in this dish, but it was inedibly salty! I wouldn't even add the extra salt in the mix because the bouillon is salty enough.
This recipe was really good. It is a bit salty but I like stuff salty. If you like a dryer rice, I would suggest less water like the other reviews said. I couldn't get mine to brown but I think its because I used onion powder instead of chopped onions. This is the first time I ever attempted to make Mexican rice (usually by it in the box) and my husband and I both loved it. Its so easy! I will definitely make this often!
We really enjoyed this rice. I did reduce the salt a bit. I am now planning to make it for the third time:)
I made this dish today because my 9 yr old son loves Mexican food and had been asking for Mexican rice for a long time. The mix was quite easy to put together since I had all the ingredients on hand. Changes I made, I reduced the water as suggested by the other revewers. It came out perfect. This recipe is a keeper.
Great side dish! I made this with tacos and my husband (very picky), loved it and said it's a keeper. I would probably use just a bit less salt in the mix since the chicken bouillon is salty in itself and I did cut back on the water just using a little more than 2 cups. As good as Zatarains according to my husband and the nice part is I always have the ingredients on hand!
The rice was moister than we like it, so I will reduce the water by 1/2 cup next time. The flavor is great, and the spice mix is so easy to put together.
A good side dish, and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand.
