A midweek post calls for an easy one dish meal! Don’t be fooled by the fiery red appearance of this Mexican rice. It is not tongue numbing, blow your top off hot and spicy. After all we are not talking about Szechuan dishes here. With that being said, this little rice number is definitely not apologetic in terms of flavours.
This Mexican rice was cooked in tempered spices of ground cumin, oregano, sweet paprika, some chipotle in adobo sauce (adjust to taste) and crushed tomatoes as well as broth. Like many Mexican dishes, I think chipotle in adobo sauce really made the dish. This is no exception.
