    Your Pantry Essentials
    Utensils: a pot or large saucepan | sieve |
    Pantry: salt and pepper | your preferred cooking oil | water |
    Prepare your Ingredients
    Wash and soak your rice. Use a fine sieve / strainer and just run it under cold water. Wash it till the water runs clear or close to clear. Then soak your rice before you start cooking. Ideally soak it for 1/2 hour.

    Garlic and Onion: peel and chop
    Red bell pepper: wash and cut into small dices, around 1 cm
    Button Mushrooms: wash and chop
    Coriander: wash and dry and chop.
    Prepare the Rice and Serve
    Once the rice is done soaking, completely drain out the water. Now warm some cooking oil in a pot, add the Mexican spice mix and then start sauteeing the onions. Let them go translucent, that takes 3 minutes or so. Then add the rice and garlic and let them sautee before adding the mushroms. Let the mushrooms sweat out the most of their water before adding the vegetable stock. Mix the rice and stock well then add the bell pepper, corn and beans. Mix well. Check the seasoning and let it simmer gently for about 15 minutes.

    In the final 5 minutes of cooking add the peeled tomatoes.Then cook everything for about 5-10 minutes, to cook out the raw taste of the tomatoes. You'll know the rice is ready once some of the moisture has evaporated. At this stage turn off the heat.

    Garnish with chopped coriander and serve.
