    Traditional Mexican Red Rice

  • 2 cups Rice
  • 4 cups Boiling Water -- 4 cups exactly
  • 3/4 cup Red tomato pure
  • 1/2 cup Carrots in little cubes
  • 1/2 cup Peas
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Vegetable oil
  • Early in the morning put the rice in hot water for to wash it and let stand 2 or 3 hours more or less. Then retire the water and let it dry, it can take another hour or try to dry it with a kitchen fabric.

    Fry the rice in a big amount of vegetable oil (you will retire all of it do not worried about fat) when the rice sounds like sand and looks hard, take away all of the vegetable oil, you can use a sauce spoon.

    When the rice is without oil, add the red tomato puree and let it season 5 minutes, stir and stir, then add 4 cups of boiling water, salt and pepper and the vegetables, cover and let cook in the most little flame you can get until is done without water, it can take 30 minutes or more. Serve.
