Make Mexican Rice in 5 Minutes

Mexican rice can be a quick and easy side dish that can go on the table in just a few minutes when you use 5 minute rice instead of rice that takes for ever to cook.

This is how I make it at home when time is short and I need a tasty side dish.

5 Minute Mexican Rice

1 16 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
2 tsp ground cumin
1 chipotle pepper from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 tbsp adobo sauce
2 cups 5 minute rice (like Minute Rice)

Place chipotle pepper, adobo sauce and 1/4 cup of chicken stock in a blender and puree until thoroughly blended.

In a medium size pot, heat crushed tomatoes, remaining chicken stock, chipotle pepper mixture and cumin to boiling.

Stir in 2 cups of 5 minute rice. Remove from heat and let rice sit for 5 minutes.
Fluff rice and serve.

Adjust heat of the rice by adjusting the quantity of chipotle and adobo sauce used.
