Mexican Tomato Rice

Enjoy this easy Mexican rice as a side dish to accompany beef burritos or chilli. You can choose to make it veggie if you like by using vegetable stock.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Difficulty: Easy
Serves: 4-6

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
250g long grain rice
1 tsp chipotle paste, optional (more if you want it spicier)
1 tbsp tomato purée
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
750ml hot chicken or vegetable stock
small bunch of coriander, finely chopped

METHOD

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and sizzle the onion for 5 mins until just starting to soften.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for a minute more, then stir in the chipotle paste (if using) and the tomato purée and cook for a minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes, then scatter the rice into the pan and stir, so it’s coated in the tomato mix.
  4. Pour over the hot stock, season, give everything another stir and bring to the boil, then cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat down to the lowest possible setting.
  5. Gently simmer for 15-20 mins until all the stock has been absorbed and the rice is cooked through.
  6. Leave the rice to sit for a few mins off the heat, then stir through the coriander and serve.
