Make Restaurant-Style Mexican Rice

If you've ever attempted your favorite Mexican restaurant's rice at home and failed, raise your hand. Well, you can put it down now, because this one is my all-time family favorite and I think it will become yours, too. To be honest, I like it so much better than the rice usually served when I dine out.

Regular Vs. Basmati Rice - Nutrition Guide

Regular Vs. Basmati Rice - Nutrition Guide - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. The major difference is in the aroma and the flavor of the two different kinds of rice. Here you have regular, long grain, white rice which can be used in any application for cooking rice. Both the Basmati and, here is the Basmati, both the Basmati and the regular rice, they take about the same amount of time to cook but the difference is the Basmati, which is this one. They look very similar. So it is always good to label them if you have one or the other in the house so you can tell them apart. Also if you give it a little sniff you can tell the Basmati from the plain, long grain rice. Basmati is more of a unique flavor. So anytime you want to incorporate that uniqueness to a dish, that nuttiness, that earthiness then you would incorporate the Basmati into a dish. I would not recommend Basmati for something like dessert, like rice pudding or something like that because it is going to overpower that sweetness that you're going to get from the other ingredients in a dish like that. But really, regular rice can be used in just about any application.
