Tried the Mexican Rice.....

Tonight I tried a Mexican Rice recipe that I found at and it was great!

It was easy to make and tastes Much better than the box or bag kind you find in the store. And it makes a LOT. Probably about 6 servings or more.

This recipe calls for a jar of Ortega Salsa-Thick & Chunky . . . but really you could use whatever variety you like. We used the "Medium" heat, but, next time I'll use a Mild type cause this had some Heat!


Also, it calls for 1 large carrot peeled and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I'm lazy, so instead I just used 3/4 cup of frozen pees and carrots. Came out fine.

Thanks for the review. It always helps to hear if something is worth trying or not. I'll tackle that rice soon. I need to make a taco casserole, it'll be perfect.
