We all have those super easy never fail recipes that we can rely on. When we had enchiladas last night I made Southwest Rice. This is an easy dish that tastes like you slaved over it. It is fine for a quick weeknight dinner or company.
The ingredients are:
2 tablespoon Oil
3 tablespoon Onion finely chopped
2 cloves Garlic minced
1 1/2 cups Rice
1 1/4 cup Chicken stock
1/2 cup Salsa
Heat the oil over medium heat and saute the onions for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rice and saute until the rice is golden brown. Add garlic and saute for another minute. Add chicken stock and salsa. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cover the pan and let it simmer for 20 minutes without disturbing or peeking. Serve.
This is tasty, with a nice texture and colour. If you try it, it will become a favourite. Plus, it has to be easy, I can make it.
