You can enjoy Mexican style rice at home too - it's easy to make and delicious! Use brown rice for a fiber boost.
2 Tablespoons olive or canola oil
2 cups rice, long-grain white, uncooked
3 cups chicken broth, reduced-sodium
1 1/2 cups finely chopped white onion
1 to 2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 can (14 1/2 ounce) Mexican or Italian style tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 seeded and chopped green bell pepper
1 Heat oil in medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Saute the rice until just golden, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of chicken broth if moisture is needed.
2 Add onions and garlic and saute for a minute or two.
3 Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, the rest of the chicken broth, salt and bell pepper. Bring to a boil.
4 Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the broth is absorbed.
