Rice Cooker Mexican Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by strawberrybird

A spicy, easy to prepare side dish to accompany any mexican dish. White rice is standard, but you can use any type of rice you like for this yummy recipe. You can even adapt this recipe for couscous by omitting the cooking in the rice cooker. UPDATED to account for error in rice and water proportion. Note that the type of rice you use and the type of rice cooker may require further adjustment.

This was really good! Next time I would probably cut back a bit on the cayenne. I used a bit of onion powder instead of the onion.
