Servings: 8 servings

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups uncooked instant white rice
  1. In large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, sea salt, and cilantro. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  2. Add tomato sauce and water. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. 
  3. Add uncooked rice and bring back to a boil. Cover and turn off heat. Let rice sit covered for 5 minutes until liquids have been absorbed. 

This Mexican Rice recipe is super easy to whip up. It can all be done in one pot and all done in 10 minutes.

Key to Success #1 – Cook Spices Until Fragrant
The first step to this recipe is to cook the herbs and spices in olive oil. You can use the same pot that you’ll use to make your rice. No need for a separate pot.

You’ll want to cook the spices in the oil until they are fragrant. This will take about a minute or two.

Key to Success #2 – Bring It to a Boil
After the spices are fragrant, add the tomato sauce and water then bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.

Once the liquid starts to boil, add the uncooked instant white rice to the pot then bring back to a boil. It should only take a few minutes for the rice to start to boil. Just watch it carefully.

Key to Success #3 – Cover and Let Sit
After adding the rice, cover the pot and remove it from the heat. The instant rice will absorb the liquid and the spices and you will end up with delicious, fluffy, spicy Mexican Rice.

This Mexican Rice recipe is super easy and quick and it turns out great every time. Of course, you can customize the spices to your liking. If you don’t like cilantro, you can certainly leave it out.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Synology DS419slim Review

The DS419slim fills a unique niche by being a NAS drive that exclusively accepts only 2.5in drives. A limitation that is perhaps more of a curse than a blessing. Find out why in our review.
Should I Buy The Synology DiskStation DS419slim?
On paper a NAS drive that uses 2.5in drives might seem interesting until you realise the limited sizes available for NAS use, and the cost of owning them.
Unless you really need a compact NAS drive, another model is likely to be a better choice.
