Cheesy Mexican Rice

Posted Oct 29 2012 9:30am

Mexican Rice
Adapted slightly from the Pioneer Woman

Ingredients:

2 T canola oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalepeno, seeded and minced
1.5 yellow onions, finely chopped
4 cups long grain white rice
2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatos
1 10 ounce can mild Rotel
1 t cumin
1 t salt
1 t black pepper
1/2 t cayenne pepper
6-8 c chicken broth
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Fresh cilantro to top with

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil in dutch oven or other oven safe pan and add the onions, jalepeno and garlic. Cook about 6-8 min's, until softened. Reduce heat to low and add the rice. Stir constantly, making sure the rice doesn't burn. Cook over low heat about 3 min's.

Next, add diced tomatos, Rotel, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne. Stir to combine and let cook, about 2 minutes. Finally, add the chicken broth and stir the mixture together. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until the rice isnot quite done, 10-15 minutes.

Stir in 1 cup of cheese and then top with remaining cheese and bake with the lid off until the cheese is melted and the rice is fully cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro.
