Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice


A delicious side dish, ideal for serving alongside our birria tacos or stuffing bell peppers!


2 garlic cloves / 4 tsp minced garlic

1 large onion, diced

1 tin chopped tomatoes (400g)

300g white or brown rice

750ml vegetable broth

1 guajillo chilli

1 ancho chilli

1 tsp tomato puree

1 tsp rubbed oregano

1 tbsp smoked paprika


Soak the dried chillies in boiling water for around 20 minutes until soft, transfer to a blender with tomato puree, paprika and a splash of water and blend until smooth, this will be your chilli paste, you can add chilli powder or flakes to this if you like a bit more heat.

Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion until soft, add the garlic, oregano & chilli paste, cook for a few minutes until fragrant.

Add the chopped tomatoes and heat, add the rice & stock, give it a quick mix to ensure the rice is combined and bring to the boil.

Once boiling, cover the pan, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes ( stirring occasionally if needed) the stock should be absorbed and the rice should be fluffy.

Let the rice cool slightly and serve with plenty of fresh coriander.
