I’m sure a lot of you may think “ With a name like that there’s no way that you can cook Mexican food”, but some of my best chef friends that are from Mexico can vouch, this gringo can cook…🙃 Here’s one of my recipes!
1/4 c oil
1 1/2 c white rice
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 small onion
1 fresh tomato puréed
2 tsp tomato bullion
1 carrot
1/2 cup peas
3 c water
1 jalapeño whole
Rinse rice and set aside
Heat oil in large pan, add rice until just starting to brown then add jalapeño and onion. Cook until rice is nicely browned then add garlic.
Cook until fragrant then add puréed tomato, tomato bouillon, salt to taste, carrots, peas and water.
Bring to boil, then cover, reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat to rest for about five minutes before fluffing with a fork. Enjoy!
