Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large carrot, finely diced
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups medium-grain rice
  • 4 cups chicken broth, plus more if needed
  • 1 cup LA VICTORIA® Red Taco Sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 serrano chile, left whole (optional)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup roasted peppers
  • 1/4 cup LA VICTORIA® Fire Roasted Diced Green Chiles
  • 1/4 cup black olives, diced
  • 3 tbsp parsley, freshly chopped

Cooking Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion and carrots and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring often, until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more.
  3. Stir in the rice and cook until slightly toasted, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken broth and the LA VICTORIA® Red Taco Sauce, stir and bring to boil.
  5. Add the bay leaf, salt and the serrano chile, if desired. Reduce the heat, and cover and simmer until the rice is just tender, about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the lid and scatter the raw shrimp over the top of the rice.
  7. Cover the pan again and cook for 5 minutes more (for medium-sized shrimp), or until the shrimp are cooked through.
  8. Scatter the roasted peppers, LA VICTORIA® Fire Roasted Diced Green Chiles, black olives and parsley over the top of the shrimp, cover the rice again and let the rice stand for 5 minutes more.
  9. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
