Recipe by Lou van

Very easy and has worked perfectly every time I've made it. It sounds like a lot of salt but it really does work. Taken from "Mexican Cooking" by Carolyn Dehnel. The only problem is its supposed to serve four but we love it so much it only feeds the two of us.

  2. Heat oil in a pan and cook the onion, garlic and chilli until slightly browned.
  3. Add rice, stir well to ensure each grain is coated in oil (this will ensure the grains don't stick together when cooked), brown the rice slightly.

  5. Put into a flameproof casserole dish.
  6. Cook in oven for 30 - 35 minutes.
