  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Fry rice in hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stream water into the saucepan while stirring the rice; season with tomato powder, onion powder, and garlic powder and stir.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook at a boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, place a cover on the saucepan, and cook until the moisture is mostly absorbed by the rice, about 15 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and let sit covered to let last moisture be absorbed into rice, about 5 minutes more.

Made exactly as specified & it was almost exactly what I was looking for. This was extremely easy to put together. Next time however I will add sauteed onions & fresh garlic instead of the pow...

Made this recipe and it came out very nicely. Since I didn't have the tomato bouillon, garlic powder, and onion powder I substituted with salt, tomato paste, and adobo. I kept tasting with a t...

We really like rice done with the tomato-flavored bouillon powder. (You will find it next to the chicken bouillon at the market) I can't speak to the ratio of water to rice as I used my rice c...

Awesome recipe! Easy peasy, fluffy and delicious. My husband and I just loved this. My new go-to for authentic Mexican rice. Be sure to use the Caldo Tomate by Knor--I dissolved it in the wa...

Easy, fast and delicious. If you're looking for rice similar to that found in a really good Tex-Mex restaurant, this is it.

i liked this recipie the only different thing i did was use jasmine rice because its easier to work with and doesnt come out sticky and i put butter before the water and let it cook for a while....

I made this as a side. Rice was well done, surprised since I can't cook rice at all.
