Easy Restaurant Style Mexican Rice
Tastes just like the flavorful, bright, and fluffy Mexican rice you get in your favorite authentic Mexican restaurant.
1 & 1/2
long-grain white rice
minced dry onion
OR vegetable broth works too
Heat oil on medium-high in a large saucepan. Add rice and saute to brown and toast the grains. Some should be slightly brown and others white as they heat.
Add the garlic, cumin, and dry onion. Stir to saute and toast the spices along with the rice for about a minute.
Add in the broth and stir. Next, add the tomato sauce and stir.
Bring to a boil and then turn down to low. Put the lid on your saucepan and continue to cook on a very slow simmer for about 20 minutes.
Try and only remove the lid and stir 1-2x during the 20 minute cooking time.
When done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a serving bowl.
