This is an excellent authentic Mexican rice recipe that I make as a side dish with all of my Mexican dishes. If you use tomato sauce then don't forget to add Mexican spices, salt and specially cumin powder. I had ready Mexican sauces, so didn't use much spices since sauce contains the spices.
  Oil 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Onion 3 Tablespoon, chopped finely
  Long grain rice/Brown rice 1 Cup (16 tbs), washed, drained (Any Mexican variety of rice may be used)
  Vegetable broth/Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Enchilada sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salsa/Picante sauce 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Red bell pepper 3 Tablespoon, chopped finely
  Green bell pepper 3 Tablespoon, chopped finely
  Green onion 2 Tablespoon, chopped finely

1. Take a large non-stick pan heated with oil, add the finely chopped onions. Stir and let it brown a little.
2. Add the long grain white rice, stir and let it fry for a few minutes without adding any water.
3. Add the vegetable broth, enchilada sauce, chunky salsa or picante sauce and stir well. Cover and let it cook for 7 to 8 minutes.
4. After 8 minutes uncover and check the rice. Stir and cover again and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
5. Uncover and when the rice is cooked sprinkle the bell peppers and green onions on the rice to garnish.

6. Serve the rice with enchilada, refried beans sprinkled with cheese, guacamole, lettuce and a dollop of sour cream.
