Restaurant Style Mexican Rice
This really is the perfect Mexican rice recipe. The rice turn out light, fluffy, and flavorful; just like a restaurant. I have made this rice many, many times with consistent results. You can also stir in 1 cup of thawed, frozen peas and carrots if you like.
- Stir bouillon into hot water until dissolved. Set aside.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add rice and stir until lightly browned; about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, salt, and cumin.
- Add the bouillon water to the rice. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and cover pan. Simmer for 20-25 minutes. (Note: When adding water to hot pan, it will steam up a little.)
- Fluff cooked rice with a fork and stir in the cilantro.
I forgot to take a separate picture of the rice. Next time I make this rice I will get a better picture.
