DIRECTIONS

  • Place the rice in a heat-proof bowl and pour enough boiling water to cover. Let rice stand 20 minutes. Drain, then rinse under cool water. Drain again.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the achiote powder and cook for about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the minced onion and garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the onion is translucent.
  • Stir in the rice, toss to coat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. (The rice will want to stick to the bottom of the pan, so scrape it up using a metal spatula.).
  • Pour in the broth, mix well and bring rice to a boil.
  • Lower the heat, cover the pan and simmer 25-30 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.
  • Just before serving, add the minced jalapeno if using, season to taste with salt. Transfer the rice to a serving dish and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
