Recipe by Ginny Sue
I've tried a lot of Mexican rice recipes over the years, and this is my current favorite. This can also be made into a gift mix.

This is a great, simple recipe that I've been making regularly. It's not aggressively flavorful, but I'm not looking for that in a side dish. It's very tasty, and I love that it uses only ingredients that I generally keep around the house. The only thing I've changed is that I use chicken stock in place of the water and bullion.
- 2 1⁄2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
- 1 tablespoon dried onion
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1 1⁄4 cups rice
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
