I really don't like bland rice! This is nicely spicy with great tomato and cumin flavours. If you cant find the chicken/tomato broth then just substitute some tomato juice instead of some of the water. Add some hot sauce to make it pop!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute rice in oil until golden brown. Use medium saucepan.
  2. Add onion and garlic and brown slightly.
  3. Add cumin, chile powder and salt. Saute to develop flavour.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except cilantro. Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or untill rice is a to preferred consistency. I prefer al dente. You can stir several times during cooking and scrape the bottom of the pan. May need to add a little more boiling water.
  5. Add cilantro before serving.
