I recall the absolute first time I had mexican rice, which wasn't excessively long back and in a split second adored it. From that point forward, I have had mexican rice in such huge numbers of spots and keeping in mind that everybody makes them in an unexpected way, they all have the essential flavors. The eatery style mexican rice isn't hard to cook at home, in actuality it's very simple to make with a bunch on fixings.

This simple veggie lover Mexican rice is a one pot dish which you can fill in as a side or as a piece of fundamental dish. The rice is gently spiced and has corn, tomato, garlic, onion and jalapeno. I served it with poblano peppers yet you can serve them with tacos, burrito or simply eat them with some refried beans. I figure they will likewise be incredible in stuffed peppers with some cheddar to finish everything.

I have utilized basmati rice in this formula however you may utilize long grain. Since I had just basmati at home, I proceeded with it and it worked truly well in this formula.
