3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup long grain rice, uncooked
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the rice & onion and gently stir until rice begins to lightly brown.
Add the taco seasoning.
Add the tomato sauce and chicken broth and turn the heat up to medium high.
Bring the mix to a boil then turn the heat to low and cover the pan with a lid.
Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
Both my husband and daughter were very reluctant to try this rice as neither of them are crazy about Spanish rice but boy did they love it! The original recipe called for fresh garlic, cumin powder, salt & cilantro but I cheated and used the Taco Bell seasoning package I had on hand. I could not believe how delicious this came out and it will be a regular on the menu.
