Basic Mexican Rice with Vegetables

One of the authentic Mexican recipes that every cook should know about is Mexican Rice. Mexican rice, also recognized in the United States as Spanish rice, is basically a side dish that is made out of garlic, parsley, onions, tomatoes, cilantro and of course, rice. These ingredients change from recipe to recipe though. Sometimes it is made spicy, other times mild, and you can throw all kinds of ingredients into it to make it unique.

The ingredients in Mexican rice are usually cooked by sautéing them in a skillet, before adding some stock. Some veggies are also commonly mixed in, such as corn, peas and carrots perhaps. The dish is served warm as a side dish. What is ironic with this dish often called Spanish rice is that it is unknown in Spain. Know that the Mexicans and Mexican foodies were not the ones who coined the term; it was named as such probably because the Spanish language is used by Mexicans. In Mexico, the dish is simply called ‘arroz’ which means rice in Spanish.

Mexican rice is a well-known food in the United States, especially in the Southwest, where it is usually accompanied by grilled and stewed veggies for a tasty Mexican or Tex-Mex style meal. It offers balanced colors, flavors and textures, and is served together with other Mexican dishes both north and south of the border, and offers a tasty side dish which the whole family will find very tasty.
