I must say, it is a contender for my favorite Mexican rice.  It tastes just like a lot of Mexican rice I've had at restaurants, and the little veggies make it really authentic.  A fantastic side for any Mexican dinner, and easy too.

Cooking rice in V8 tomato juice infuses the rice with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and caratinoids. 2 cups v8 juice to 1 cup rice. Great flavor AND tons of health benefits. AMAZING!

This is how we Mexicans from California make our rice. We call it Spanish rice, not mexican rice! I didn't hear the term "mexican rice" until I moved to the midwest. This is how all of my family make the rice, aunts and grandmother alike. We don't put in peas or carrots like I have seen from other recipes. I was told by my sons girlfriend that I make it just like the restaurants. I hope that was a compliment!!

Mexican Rice (Like You Get at a Mexican Restaurant) ... When I make this I add additional chopped tomatoes, when the salsa and broth are added. For me it's just what's missing in the recipe.
