Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

There's a lot of Mexican flavors in this dish, like tequila, Mexican oregano, chile powder, habanero chiles, tomato paste, and rice.



  1. Rinse rice with cold water until water runs clear. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add rice and cook until rice turns golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, combine tequila, broth, tomato, salt, oregano, and pepper. Pour over rice and bring to a boil. Add bay leaves and habanero chiles.
  4. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes or until rice is desired tenderness. Remove bay leaves and chiles. Serve warm.
