Restraunt Style Mexican Rice

To be honest, this actually has more flavor then the stuff you get next to your beans at the mexican restraunt. It was so delicious and rather easy, it will surely be a staple in our house!

3 TBSP oil
1 cup dry long grain rice
1/4 cup of onion finely chopped
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth (I used beef because that's what I had)
I also added some carne asada seasoning. It would really add some more flavor if you had some of that or a sprinkle of taco seasoning but it's not necessary.

Heat oil in pan. Add rice and onion and saute until golden brown.

Sprinkle with seasonings when it's nearly done browning. Mix well and add tomato sauce and broth.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Let me know how yours turns out. I always enjoy hearing when others have tried the recipes I post!
