Welcome to The Storied Recipe! I host a unique podcast where every guest gives me a recipe that’s significant to their culture, life, and memories. I make, photograph, and share the recipe with you. I invite you to listen to Diana's powerful story as you make her Authentic Mexican Rice Recipe (Spanish Rice).
Ok. I'm going to confess something right up front. I didn't make this recipe from my podcast guest Diana Silva properly.
You can tell from the images that mine ended up just a little on the mushy side. If you follow Diana's recipe correctly, your grains will be perfectly separated. Each grain is encased in a lovely little exterior of fat and flavor. There is no shortage of either in this recipe! Washing, drying, and frying the rice is the key that Diana taught me! With this method, even if you get a little generous with the liquid, as I did, you'll still love it. I went back for bite after bite as I was preparing the plates to photograph!!
I can guarantee you I'll be making this again. Normally, I'd make it again simply to prove to myself that I can do it properly! 😉 But in this case, I'll be making it again and again for the flavor.
So head on down to the recipe, but I'd also encourage you to watch Diana's video, go a little easy on the liquid (you can always add more), and definitely, definitely to make this along with her Easy Chicken Mole!!!
