Exclamation Recipe of the Day: Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice

Serving Size : 6

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic -- minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup uncooked brown rice -- NOT INSTANT
2 cups fat-free chicken broth
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper or chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion

Heat oil. Add rice and cook until golden and toasted. Add and lightly saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic.

Put salt, 1/2 cup of tomatoes (undrained) and broth in a blender. Process till smooth.

Add liquid from blender to the rice mixture slowly. You can drain the rest of the tomatoes and add them to the rice at this point if you want extra tomato.

Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, about 1 hour. (Or however long brown rice needs to simmer - my package says 1 hour.)

Don't remove the lid during the cooking process.

NOTES : This recipe calls for quite a bit of oil. If you want to use less, try cooking spray and a nonstick pan. But I think it's the oil that gives it that yummy flavor. Might be worth any points you'd have to count.

If you don't have fresh garlic, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the blender.
