Prepare the ingredients before making Mexican Red Rice in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Mexican Red Rice for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Mexican Red Rice

  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small serano chili pepper, finely chopped (use jalepeno instead for a little more kick)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp sea/kosher salt (can use table salt at half the amount)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

How to Make Mexican Red Rice

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 10 steps you must follow to make Mexican Red Rice in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Place rice in a bowl, cover with cold water, swish around, and drain in a colander. Repeat until water runs clear. You can also opt to rinse it in a colander under cold running water until it runs clear (less effort but still takes awhile).
  • Step 2
  • Let rice sit in colander to drain/dry for at least 20-30 minutes. I usually do this step in the morning so that by the time I'm ready to cook, I don't have to wait for it to dry.
  • Step 3
  • Combine tomatoes (undrained), onion, garlic, and serano pepper in a food processor and puree.
  • Step 4
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan (taller is better due to spatter that can occur) over medium-low heat. When hot, add rice and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Step 5
  • Turn heat up (medium to medium-high) and continue cooking rice for another 6-8 minutes, stirring often.
  • Step 6
  • When rice starts to turn golden in color, add the puree mixture. Note that it will steam and may spatter a bit when added.
  • Step 7
  • Turn heat up (high) and cook, stirring constantly until puree has mostly been absorbed (about 3-5 minutes).
  • Step 8
  • Add chicken broth and salt. Bring to a boil.
  • Step 9
  • Cover, reduce heat (low), and simmer until broth has been absorbed (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Step 10
  • Uncover, fluff rice, and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
