Flavoured with a small amount of spicy chorizo sausage and crushed dried chillies, this is a traditional taste of Mexico. A quick-to-prepare guacamole and soft flour tortillas complete the meal.
In Mexico, this popular ‘red rice’ dish is made with fresh, bright red, juicy tomatoes. When you have well-flavoured fresh tomatoes, use 600g, deseeded and chopped, in place of the canned tomatoes and increase the amount of stock or water to 600ml.
Several factors, such as the width of your pan, will affect the cooking time for the rice. It is ready when the grains are tender and all the liquid has been absorbed. Add a little extra stock or water if needed.
My Kind of food, but ramped it up with chillies1 The guacamole dip that goes with it in the book is absolutely mouth watering! A great dish for getting nearly all your fruit/veg needs a day! - 12 Aug 2011
