Useful Tips

  • If desired, you can sprinkle half a lime before eating; this will enhance the flavor and provide the dish with an appropriate sourness.
  • You can also add chunks of chicken, pork, or beef to the rice
  • You can also cook Mexican rice in the oven. Once you’ve added all the ingredients in a 1-quart saucepan, place the pan in an oven preheated to 175 degrees. Cover the pot with a lid or aluminum foil, then bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the rice is soft and fairly dry.
  • Chopped green peppers or chopped olives can be added along with other ingredients if desired.
  • Leftovers can be stored for up to 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
