Mexican Rice Done My Way

Here is a video of how I make Mexican rice for my family.  I did a lot of research by reviewing many recipes online to get the ingredients that should be used in Mexican rice, and this is what I finally came up with.


Here is the list of ingredients for my Mexican rice.

3 cups of rice (I use Goya)

2 tables spoons oil ( I used olive oil)

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 cup of water

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp powder chicken bouillon

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 8oz can tomato sauce


  1. Heat the oil in a medium to large size pan on medium / high heat for 1 to 3 minutes.  Then add the rice to the pan and stir to coat rice with the oil.
  2. Begin toasting the rice for about 5 to 7 minutes or until slightly brown. Starring constantly so rice don’t burn.
  3. Then add in your tomato sauce and stir to coat rice.  Then add in all of the seasonings, including the powder chicken bouillon, and stir to combine.
  4. Then add in the chicken broth and water stirring all ingredients until well mixed.
  5. Bring to a boil and reducing the liquid.  Once the liquid is reduced, cover rice a lid and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes or until rice is soft.

Rice is ready to serve
