Ingredients

  • 1 (28-ounce) can fire-roasted whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 medium white onion roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1-2 red chili peppers or jalapeño peppers seeded and finely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth (1 carton)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1-2 limes

Instructions

  1. Purée tomato and onion in a food processor. You’ll need 2 cups of the Mixture; preserve the rest for later or for a Mexican-style chicken soup.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat avocado oil over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Toast brown rice in the oil, stirring frequently until it’s lightly toasted, about 8-10 minutes. Add chili peppers and garlic; stir until combined.

  3. Pour 2 cups of the tomato mixture and chicken bone broth into the saucepan. Stir in salt and cumin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 45 minutes, undisturbed. (Do not uncover the pot to check the rice during cooking.)

  4. Remove from heat and let it stand for 10-15 minutes. Stir in chopped cilantro and lime juice. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Notes: This Mexican rice can also be made with Kettle & Fire Tomato Soup. You may skip the first step of the recipe and just use the tomato soup as the cooking liquid along with Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth.
