I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Mexican Rice
...in your mind.

Mexican Rice

Makes about 3 cups, 3 very delicious cups - One of my favs, and this is sooooo much better than a pack


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced small
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 cups chicken broth, use a little less if you like it drier
  • 4 ounces red enchilada sauce, canned is muy perfecto here
  • 1/3 cup diced green onions, just the white/light green part
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 lime


  1. Melt butter & oil in a small pot over medium heat
  2. Add onions and cook until just translucent, 4-5 minutes
  3. Add rice, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder & salt - mix well to combine and cook a couple minutes
  4. Add chicken broth and enchilada sauce, stir well - bring to a boil, put on a lid, reduce to a simmer and let cook until the liquid is all evaporated and it’s where you like it - 15 to 20 minutes
  5. Remove from heat, add green onion and lime juice, stir well and serve
  6. Garnish with Cilantro
