How to make super easy mexican rice
For this recipe you’ll need 1 1/2 cup white rice, 1 packet of sazon Goya with culantro and achiote, 2 tsp of chicken bouillon, 2 tbs of vegetable oil and 3 cups of water.
Here is a photo of the chicken bouillon I use. I always use the Knorr brand. The orange packet is the sazon Goya. This is what is going to give the rice it’s orange color.
Heat up the oil in a pot over medium heat. Then add the rice. You’re going to toast the rice over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes or until the rice turns a golden color as shown below.
Now that the rice is toasted go ahead and add the water, sazon goya and chicken bouillon. Stir and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for for 20 minutes.
When the rice is done fluff it with a fork. It should look like the photo below.
This easy rice is yummy alongside pinto beans. Rice and pinto beans are the perfect sides to go with any Mexican meal.
