Mexican Vegetarian Spicy White Rice, In Mexico, as in much of the world, rice has a place at the table for nearly every meal. Some cuisines favor potatoes and others prefer noodles but the Mexicans love rice, as does much of Asia. Corn and rice are among the mainstays of Mexican cuisine and these two ancient grains are served in an endless variety of ways.

Mexican White Rice Recipe 

This dish features a classic Mexican combination of flavors and with the lively colors of the corn and poblano chilies this rice dish is a feast for the eyes as well. The corn and onion give color to the rice, as does the fresh cilantro used as a garnish. With the mildly spicy-sweet flavor of roasted poblano in a co-starring role with corn's earthy sweetness and the delicate flavor of Queso Fresco, this is Mexican comfort food at its best.

Mexican White Rice Ingredients 

  1. 1 cup rice (long grain white rice - brown rice can be used, simply allow 15 minutes longer for it to cook)
  2. 1 small yellow onion, minced
  3. 1 small red onion, minced
  4. 3 medium to large poblano chilies, roasted and diced finely
  5. 1 cup corn (canned or fresh cut from the cob - grilled corn is great if you have some on hand)
  6. 2 tsp oregano (fresh Mexican oregano is best, but dried will do nicely)
  7. ¾ cup queso fresco, shredded (this is a mild, firm cheese - farmer's cheese makes a good substitute)
  8. 1 tbsp olive oil
  9. 2 cups water
  10. Fresh cilantro, sliced avocado and lime wedges for garnish

Spicy White Rice Preparation

  1. Heat oil to medium-high in a skillet and sauté the onions, poblanos, and rice for 5-7 minutes, until the onions are starting to become translucent and the rice begins to turn golden brown.
  2. Stir regularly to avoid burning the rice as you cook.
  3. Add the oregano when the onions are half done to allow the flavor to permeate the rice and onions; stir for a minute and add the corn for the last 2 minutes of sautéing.
  4. Add the water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  5. Once the rice comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cover.
  6. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes and then remove from heat and allow the rice to stand covered for another five minutes before fluffing with a fork.
  7. Stir once and spoon the rice into a serving bowl.
  8. Top with the shredded queso fresco and avocado slices.
  9. Serve hot with lime wedges and watch it disappear.
  10. Classic comfort food is always a hit at the dinner table; and when you serve something this great to your guests, leftovers aren't something you'll have to worry about - arroz con poblano is one of those "now you see it, now you don't" kind of meals.
