    I must have tried a dozen different recipes. How do they get that flavor?
    The last recipe i tried below was pretty good but it just wasn't it.


    Brown 1 cup of rice in veg oil ( about 2 turns in the pan). stir while cooking until golden brown. while its browning sprinkle 1 teas garlic salt and 1/2-1 teas cumin. Stir in about 1/4 cup chopped onion. cook until onions r tender. stir in 1/2 cp tomato sauce & approx 1 1/2 cps chicken broth. Bring to boil, then cover and simmer 20 min

    My favorite Mexican rice is 'Mexican Tomato Rice & Beans'.

    The rice mixed with the tomatoes and black beans mixture is so tasty!
