My sister, by far, makes Mammo's rice perfectly. However, when she shared with me the "secret recipe", I was shocked to find how incredibly simple and easy it was to make. I love the flavor and the simplicity of this rice!
NOTE: I almost always eat brown rice, but when it comes to making perfect mexican rice, you really do need to use white. :) Also, I don't measure with this recipe, so everything (except the rice) is 'guessed'.
Mammo's Authentic Mexican Indian Rice
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 a sweet yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno (pithed and seeded), chopped finely
1 C. White Rice (I use Jasmine)
1/3 C. Fidello (short spagetti like noodles)...if you can't find them in your grocery store, just use thin spagetti broken into 1 inch pieces ~ that's what I have to do :(
1 1/2 C. Chicken, Beef, or Vegetable Broth
3/4 C. tomato sauce
pinch Kosher salt
pinch fresh ground pepper
Heat a little olive oil (not too much!) over med-high heat; add onion and jalapenos to saute...
