Rice/Arroz Mexicano

Posted on 24 August 2011 by admin     

1 c. uncooked white rice
4 c. tomato juice
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/2 green bell pepper, cleaned out and chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 1/2 c. chopped onion
2 large tomatoes, chopped, or 1 8-oz. can whole tomatoes, cut up with a spoon

Rinse and drain rice. Dry on paper towels. In a saucepan, heat tomato juice. While the juice heats, heat oil in a large frying pan and fry raw rice over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it turns light brown (about 10 to 15 minutes). Add the tomato juice to the rice in the frying pan. Add the rest of the ingredients, cover, and cook over low heat until tomato juice is absorbed and rice is soft (about 20 minutes).
