How to make it
- To prepare the rice, heat the olive oil in a large pan over a low/medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sweat gently until tender.
- Add the Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix and tomato purée and combine by stirring well.
- Add the passata and stock and stir well.
- Add the rice, stir and bring to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes until almost all the liquid has been absorbed. If the rice starts to dry out, add more liquid as required.
- Add the sweet corn and red pepper, stir well and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes until hot through, the rice is cooked and all the liquid has been absorbed.
