  • 5 tablespoons - Oil, I use Coconut or Sunflower - but any will do.

    Brief Description

    White rice and onions browned, then simmered in chicken broth and salsa. A Great side dish for any Mexican meal!

    Main Ingredient:

    Rice, chicken broth, salsa

    Nice additions would be cilantro, jalapenos and/or shredded cheddar cheese sprinkled on top! We also like to crisp ours a little - so after it has simmered, turn up heat to medium-high and turn over several times to give it an oven-crisped effect. Delish! This is a large recipe and feeds my family of 9 with leftovers. It could easily be cut in half.
