uncooked long grain rice
- In medium size pot, combine all ingredients except the oil and cheese.
- Add enough water to cover the rice and come up the the first joint of your middle finger, then pour on the oil to keep it from bubbling over while cooking.
- Bring water to boil until you see craters form in the rice.
- Reduce heat to low and cover, 30 to 45 minutes until rice is done. Add cheese and stir.
