This is the best and easiest mexican rice recipe. My sweet neighbor Ray gave this recipe to me. He is a great cook, his mom taught him well.
1/4 c. veg oil 1 small onion diced 1 clove garlic minced 1 1/2 c. rice 3 c. chicken broth 1 small can tomato sauce 1 tsp salt 3/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste ( this is optional, if you don't like heat, don't add it)
Heat oil in a sauce pan. Saute onions and garlic until onions are translucent.
Add rice and saute until rice starts to brown
Stir in chicken broth, tomato sauce and seasonings.
Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5minutes. Serve
