Mexican rice, also known as Spanish rice, is a traditional dish that is popular in Mexican and Spanish cuisine. It is a flavorful and fragrant dish made with long-grain white rice that is first sautéed in oil or fat and then cooked in a mixture of tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spices such as cumin and chili powder.

The rice is usually cooked in chicken or vegetable broth, which adds additional flavor and richness to the dish. Some variations of Mexican rice may also include vegetables such as peas, corn, or diced bell peppers.

The end result is a fluffy, slightly sticky rice that is rich in flavor and color, with a slightly reddish hue from the tomatoes and spices. Mexican rice is a versatile dish that can be served as a side dish alongside other Mexican favorites such as tacos, enchiladas, and burritos, or as a main dish on its own.
