Mexican Rice

My good friend Mando showed me how to make mexican rice from scratch!

I will never go back to the packaged kind!


Start by chopping up an onion and grating some garlic,


add that to a pan with some extra virgin olive oil and sweat out the onions. About 5 minutes or so.


Then add your rice and stir it around so it gets coated in the oil and let it cook for about 3 minutes.


Add your tomato sauce and give it a stir.  Cook for 2-3 minutes more.


add your stock and salt, give it a good stir, and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, covered.
