    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is delicious when you want a nutty, garlicky rice side dish. It complements chicken, pork, and fish very nicely and is traditionally served with a sprinkling of hot sauce. If you can find authentic molho apimentado (hot sauce madde with bird chiles), all the better!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 6 cloves garlic, sliced very thinly
    • 3 tablespoons shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas, find them in the latino section of many stores)
    • 2 cups long grain rice
    • 1/2 onion, minced (about 3/4 cup)
    • 4 cups water
    • salt
    • hot sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan saute the sliced garlic in the olive oil on low heat until garlic is crispy and light golden brown.
    2. 2
      Drain garlic on paper towels and reserve 1-1/2 tablespoons of the garlicky olive oil.
    3. 3
      In a small skillet, toast pumpkin seeds lightly (they'll begin popping all over the place), then finely mince them.
    4. 4
      Set aside.
    5. 5
      Transfer the 1-1/2 tablespoons of reserved olive oil to a large saucepan and saute the onion and rice together for about 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add water and salt, bring to a boil then lower heat, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes or until done and liquid is absorbed.
    7. 7
      Serve with minced toasted pumpkin seeds and garlic chips sprinkled on top; provide hot sauce for sprinkling also.
