Easy Mexican rice?

Is there a recipe for good, easy Mexican rice? Good here equals strong tomato flavor, peas and carrots (I'm not interested in strict authenticity). Bonus points if I can just dump the ingredients in my rice cooker and be done with it.

My favorites have had enough tomato (more?) sauce so that the rice is almost creamy.
In terms of priorities, easy
is most important. The effort it takes to make a main dish, and beans, and rice, is just too much for me to do it very often. So if there's something simple, that will go a long way to making sure I actually use it.
Note: I've seen this question
, but it's asking for almost exactly the opposite of what I'm looking for. That poster is willing to do a lot of work for something more authentic, with little tomato and no vegetable, and with a more fluffy texture.
