I’m sure there’s a much more authentic way to make Mexican rice around now, but back in February 1972 Sunwhite rice published this recipe in the Woman’s Day. It mightn’t be a true taste of Mexico, but could still be a tasty dish.
I was really surprised to find this recipe in the collection. For many years Mum made a sausage dish that consisted of beef sausages, bacon, onion, corn, tomatoes and noodles. Although it was quite simple it was always a great hit and I’ve made in many times myself. This printed recipe is a bit fancier with chicken sausage, salami and garlic, but it’s basically the same idea. Either version is worth trying out.
In the 1950s except for fish and chips Chinese was the only takeaway available, you even had to take your own saucepan to the shop for them to put the food in – no plastic containers then. Chicken & Corn soup was always a favourite. Somewhere along the line someone came up with this make-at-home version, which can be adapted to suit what you like or what you have in the cupboard. It’s not as good as the Chinese restaurant variety, but it still tastes good.
