"Authentic Mexican red rice. Easy to make! Use a different chile if you want milder or hotter rice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Roma (plum tomatoes), cored
uncooked long-grain white rice
1 3/4 cups
low-sodium chicken broth
canned tomato sauce
jalapeno pepper, chopped
salt to taste
This was very good and very easy. I made enough for 45 people and everyone enjoyed it. My only change - My altered servings called for many many Roma tomatoes, peeled. I drained a #10 can of diced tomatoes and it worked perfectly.
This looked pretty in the dish but turned out dry when served at a Mexican-themed party. Not sure what I would do differently next time....
I'm glad I picked this recipe in a hurry last night. I usually will not choose recipes that have not been highly rated by many people and choosing a recipe with only 1 rating is not normal for me. So I had to give this recipe a review.
The rice turned like a classic Mexican rice. I didn't have enough fresh tomatoes so I puréed a 12 oz can and used about 3/4 of the can. I also added a little extra cilantro and next time I will also add green chiles. This one is a keeper.
So so good. Thank you for sharing.
I love this! I've used it so many times! For those of you wondering, the Roma's equal about 1/2 a cup. If you use crushed tomatoes, drain then, and strain them they work perfectly! I live in a seven person family, three of the kids barely eat anything (especially green things and veggies) but they love this!
Loved this rice!!! Reminded me of the Mexican rice at restaurants back home (we are currently stationed in Germany). Thanks for the recipe!!!
Great rice recipe. I used Pato tomato sauce instead of regular for a little extra kick. I also don't usually pick recipes with a low amount of ratings but I'm glad that I tried this one.
This was very good and easy. I did not add any salt and did not have a jalapeno so omitted it.
