Planning a Mexican-themed night in with friends? It wouldn't be complete without this recipe for an authentic Mexican flavor explosion: taco rice flavored with cumin, ginger, chili and rosemary, served with a generous helping of garlic and paprika salsa and tacos.
Ingredients 2 Portions
For the salsa
For the taco rice
Then add the garlic, tomato puree and paprika. Fry for a few seconds. Add a little water if required.
Season to taste with salt and use a hand blender to roughly puree. Fill two bowls with the salsa and leave to cool.
To make the taco rice: Finely dice the onion. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onion. Quickly brown the rice and then use the balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan. Add the same amount of water as rice.
Season with salt, chili, ground ginger and ground cumin. Cover the rice and bring to the boil.
When the water has almost evaporated, add a spoonful of salsa and allow the rice to finish cooking. Then stir in the drained corn, kidney beans and rosemary and enjoy.
