    lucid501's Note:

    This was published in Real Simple magazine, September 06. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like a great, quick alternative to plain rice. ZWT 3: US (southern us) and Mexican/SW/Tex-Mex (salsa)

      Tweaked it a bit: 1 3/4 c. chicken broth, 3/4 c. hot salsa, pinch of salt, T butter, 1 c. long grain rice. Bring all but rice to boil, then add rice and simmer for 15 minutes. Place in casserole dish, sprinkle with Mexican Cheese, cover, place in oven at 250* to keep warm and melt cheese while preparing the rest of the meal.

      This was good and easy. I took some suggestions and used about 1 cup of salsa. I also used a vegetable bouillon cube (1/2 of a Knorr cube) and a cube of cilantro (also like a bouillon cube from Knorr). I cooked it in my rice cooker (my favorite kitchen appliance. I can't cook rice to save my life! Hail to the rice cooker! LOL) Thanks!

      A nice, simple, complimenting sidedish for our chicken tacos. I would recommend increasing the amount of salsa to 3/4 - 1 cup, as it loses it's bite with cooking. Thank you.
