Mexican Rice.

Husband loves this!
Ever since I found this recipe, I can't seem to make tacos without having Mexican rice on the side. "Is there any rice?!" he asks?

Here is the Recipe: (adapted from, by mommyto2)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth

• Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and add onions.
• Cook onions until translucent.
• Add rice, stirring constantly, until puffed and golden (2-4 minutes).

• While rice is cooking, sprinkle with taco seasoning, salt, and cumin.
• Stir in tomato sauce and chicken broth; bring to a boil. 

• Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes
• Fluff with a fork.

Optional: For more flavor, add 1 clove of minced garlic & stir just before adding the tomato sauce!

I love making that rice! Over the last few years rice has become a big side dish in my menu.

Mmm... sounds/looks so delicious! Paula Deen had a show on the FoodNetwork with a guest chef where they made Mexican rice and fried plantains as a meal. There was no color to the rice, but it still looked pretty yummy. I love your recipes, Marie.
