Traditional Mexican Rice Recipes

There are many recipes of Mexican rice and they range from the basic recipes to the much elaborated ones.

In other words Mexican rice can be, at the same time, very quick and easy to prepare but it can also be somewhat difficult and time consuming.

In this article we decided to share one very original and traditional Mexican recipe that is relatively easy, not so quick to prepare but very tasteful and unique.


  • 1 cups brown rice
  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 8 table spoons of chicken fat or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of chicken meat
  • 2 medium sized carrots
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • Pepper and salt to taste
  • cup shredded lettuce


  • Cook the chicken meat
  • Pour 3 cups of water in a large bowl and bring water to a boil.
  • Add rice slowly while stirring
  • After 10 minutes reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes
  • Drain rice in cold water 3 times while shaking it.
  • Combine cooked chicken, tomatoes, onion, carrots and garlic in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • In a souse pan heat the oil, add the rice and cook it for 10 minutes while stirring.
  • Add the blended mixture and cook for another 15 minutes while scraping the bottom of the pen to stop the mixture from sticking.
  • Stir in the salt, lettuce, pepper and chili powder
  • Cover the top and remove the pan from the heat.
