    This is a simple recipe that is much more flavorful than any mexican rice I've had in a restaurant.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      I made it once and liked it and remade it with a little more onion, a half a bay leaf and used olive oil. Now it is something I will make on a regular basis.

      This is a variation
        Super tasting and super easy!

          MMMMM!!!! brings back memories when my grandmother made it ..finally found the recipe to make it myself.. because she use to eyeball her measurements that is why mine did not come out like hers thanks for the measurements.....

            well I learned this from an Hispanic friend in a blender add half to a whole onion, about three cloves of garlic three Roma tomatoes(or a can of tomato sauce), 2 heaping tbsp. of Consomme', cover with water and blend. Depends on how many you cooking for, three cups of rice in a sauce pan and brown with vegetable oil, and add blender mixture
