Chita's Mexican Rice

Once you make this recipe, you'll never go back to using a box mix again. It is so easy and foolproof, and will be completely authentic. This is the recipe I grew up with, but of course we never measured. Just threw in this and that. This would taste best with homemade chicken stock, but the directions use canned, as that's what most people have. You can replace the canned tomatoes with Rotel diced tomatoes. Use about a half cup including the liquid, it will give it a spicy kick! The directions may seem long, but it's actually quite simple. Buen provecho!
