Mexican Rice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

and not the stuff that Mexican joints serve you......

 

MEXICAN RICE

 

1 CUP OF WHITE RICE (  I PREFER MATAHAMA)

1 CAN OF PATO SAUCE, the small. can.

1 CAN OF CHICKEN BROTH

ABOUT 2 CUPS OF BOILING WATER

SALT AND ONION POWDER  TO TASTE

2 TABLESPOONS OF COOKING OIL

 

IN A LARGE FRYING PAN ADD COOKING OIL, HEAT OIL, WHEN HOT ADD RICE AND TOAST UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN. ADD ABOUT 1 CUP OF BOILING WATER, PATO SAUCE, AND CHICKEN BROTH. RICE NEEDS TO BE COVERED BY LIQUIDS.  ADD SALT AND ONION POWDER. LET SIMMER UNTIL RICE IS SOFT AND ALL THE WATER HAS EVAPORATED, MAKE SURE TO WATCH BECAUSE IT COULD BURN, IF RICE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT HAS COOKED ADD MORE HOT WATER AND IT HAS EVAPORATED… YOU MAY ADD SOME CHEESE TO THE TOP ONCE IT IS DONE…….ENJOY…………….

 

 

This is Ernestina's recipe. Pato sauce is vital. If tomato sauce is used it takes all the zing out of it.

I've been using Pato in my mexican rice for years. Far better than the tomato paste style. I usually add a little diced white onion and garlic in while I'm browning the rice. I add the garlic near the end of browning so it doesn't get burnt and bitter. Then throw some oregano in for the simmer. Pato is great stuff!

Ernie will often put onions in it as well. She is not a fan of onion nor garlic so they get used sparingly. Only way I will eat peas is if she puts them in her rice.
Thanks for the tip about the garlic, perhaps next time she makes it she will substitute fresh garlic for the garlic powder she will often use...
