The fresh meaty ripe tomatoes contribute to its color and the aromatic spices blossom into delightful and distinctive flavors. Mexican rice has transcended in time and has earned a special place at our dining table. It is very easy to make, yet so rich in flavor. This is the only Mexican rice recipe you will ever need.
Everything tastes better in a molcajete because of all the natural oils released when the ingredients are crushed. A salsa made in a molcajete holds great value in the heart of people who love Mexican cuisine. My mother didn’t own a blender for a long time and she used a molcajete to make all her dishes. I still remember the aromas released into the back patio, where she made her dishes on a chimney made from clay. Believe me, it cannot get more authentic than this. If you feel inspired to purchase your own, congratulations. Just make sure you cure it before using it.
