Arroz a la Mexicana(Mexican Rice)

Jump to recipe

There’s is a saying in Mexico that goes: “Si sabes hacer arroz, ya te puedes casar” it Is something like. “If you know how to make rice, then you’re ready for marriage.” I’m guessing it is because rice is such a staple in Mexican cuisine, and because men love rice. I have to confess it took me a little while to master the art of making rice, I actually was already married. I don’t know how I managed that!! Anyway…

This recipe is my mom’s recipe. The very first rice recipe I learned, and even when now I make many different types of rice, when I want perfection this is my go-to, tried and true, OG Arroz a la Mexicana.

Some call it Mexican rice, some call it Spanish rice but whatever you call it, this rice will not let you down.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
