Turns out super yummy every time. Highly recommend this recipe it is very flavorful and not super dry like most restaurant Mexican rice dishes.

Decided to try this for Cinco de Mayo this year. I used Jasmine rice and wasn't able to find chiles at any of the 4 stores I visited (can you believe it?) so had to make it without it. Still tasted great. My only complaint is that with this recipe you end up with a bunch of leftover tomato/onion puree (about almost 2 cups). I guess if you use tomato sauce often you could go ahead and use it, otherwise I would make about half of the sauce for the rice.
