Spicy Red Rice

You can tell I am really liking the blog event Bookmarked Recipes. I didn’t submit my WCW recipe for it, since it was not bookmarked from anywhere, so instead this is going to be my submission for this week’s Bookmarked Recipes. Bookmarked Recipes was started by Ruth of Ruth’s Kitchen Experiments, and the host this week is Tami from Tami’s Kitchen Table Talk. This recipe is one I bookmarked as soon as the May issue of Real Simple magazine arrived a few days ago. It’s part of a feature on easy Mexican cooking which focuses on big flavor, which is perfect for me. It’s an easy Spicy Red Rice that packs a lot of flavor.

If you do want to join Bookmarked Recipes this week, here is all the info:

Spicy Red Rice, bookmarked from Real Simple May 2009
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
Kosher salt
1 cup long-grain white rice
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon chopped canned chipotle chilies in adobo
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, chilies, and 1 1/4 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring once halfway through, until all the water is absorbed, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.

I’ll have to try this. I’m always looking for new ways to cook rice and this sounds delicious.

This looks yummy and easy, and it doesn’t seem like you even need a rice cooker (which is good since we don’t have one!) 😀

I am always looking for ways to cook rice. It’s one of our family’s favorite side dishes. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us this week!

City Girl DC – this was super easy and very delicious

TheCurator – you know, I love my rice cooker, but honestly it’s not a necessity.

Tami – I think this is a good crowd-pleaser
