Take your rice game up a level.  Also known as “Mexican rice,” this is a flavourful pilaf with southwestern flavours. Serve as a side dish or use to fill tacos, burritos, and rice bowls. Streamline cooking and dirty dishes: mix, cook, and serve from the Multipurpose Steamer—our most popular piece of microwave cookware!


Ingredients

Topping (optional): chopped cilantro

Preparation
  1. In Multipurpose Steamer, combine seasoning, 4 14 cups water, rice, oil, and tomato paste. Cover and microwave on high 16–18 min, until rice is tender. Or, heat oil in Sauté Pan over high heat. Add seasoning, 4 cups water, rice, and tomato paste; stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15–20 min, or until rice is tender. 
  2. Top with cilantro, if desired.
Tips

For a full serving of carbs, eat 2 portions of rice. Stir cooked protein (like shrimp or shredded chicken) and sliced veggies into the rice near the end of the cooking time.
