DIRECTIONS

  • In a small pan bring the broth to simmering.
  • Set a large pan over medium heat-add the oil, then the rice and onion and cook, stirring, until both the rice and onion are light brown-around 10 minutes.
  • Mix in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the pureed tomato Add the broth Add the optional ingredients-except cilantro and cheese Scrape the rice down and stir well.
  • Reduce heat to a medium low, cover and finish cooking-around 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and toss and either stir in cilantro or offer at the table-I offer at the table because either you love it-like I do-or hate it, and offer the queso fresco or farmers cheese.
