Do you like rice? Growing up in a Salvadoran and Mexican household, rice was a staple in our home. We enjoyed it in so many ways! Fried Mexican rice, in soups, and of course classic white rice. Today, I will share a delicious white rice recipe, inspired by my suegra (mother-in-law).  This is my take on her recipe. I’ve watched her make this rice for years. As a result, I have come to the conclusion that she is gifted at making simple white rice taste amazing. As a matter of fact, my husband and in-laws all love to eat rice with every meal. It is easy to see why!  I am so excited to share this easy rice cooker recipe with you all.

When it comes to making rice, I rely on my trusty rice cooker.  Now, my suegra does not believe in using a rice cooker to make rice. But, I am a modern mujer. A modern woman, if you will. As a business owner and mom, I need all the kitchen hacks I can get. That is what Herencia Cookbook is all about, after all. Therefore, this recipe uses a rice cooker because I believe in the cooking philosophy of set it and forget it!

Use this white rice as a base or side dish for your favorite meals. For example, I love this rice with chicken breast and steamed veggies, like chayote or squash. This rice also tastes amazing in a burrito bowl, with beans, pico de gallo, and avocado. Finally, I enjoy cowboy burgers with guac, lettuce, and salsa in a bowl over white rice. What is your favorite way to enjoy white rice?
