    Very tasty! This recipe reminds me of the Mexican rice you get at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Very easy to prepare. Because I was short on time, I substituted 2 cups of salsa for the tomatoes and left out the jalapeño sautéed the onion with the rice. Turned out perfect; will make again!

    I live in Texas and always wanted to make Mexican rice at home. While this isn't an exact match to the Tex-Mex I'm accustomed to, it is still very flavorful and it turned out great. I dont own a Dutch oven, so I transferred it from a stovetop pot to an oven-safe, covered Pyrex dish. I did find that I needed to add some extra chicken broth before putting it into the oven and again when I took it out to stir it part way through. I didn't measure what I added, but it wasn't much - ¼ C each time at most.

    as a mexican I can say that this is as traditional as it can get when making Authentic Mexican Rice.
