Recipe #49: "White Girl" Tex-Mex Rice

I took Spanish Rice to a Mexican themed potluck this evening. A good friend, Monica said it was "white girl" rice. Well, of course it is, I am white! :) Nonetheless, it's good, even though I'm white. Enjoy!

Serves 4-6

4-6 T oil
1 C rice
1 small diced onion
1/2 t minced garlic
1 can Rotel
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cumin

In a skillet or pot heat oil on high. Add onion, garlic and rice to brown.

When browned, add the whole can of Rotel. Then fill up the can twice with water and add. Stir in cumin and salt.

When it boils, cover and turn to low. If you're cooking in a skillet without a lid, cover with foil tightly.

Simmer for 30 - 40 min. Until the bubbling water sound stops.

I, for one, love your white girl rice and have adopted it as my own when needing rice for a side. We use it in burritos with refried beans, sour cream and cheese for a quick and tasty dinner!
