Mexican Rice!

This is a great and EASY side dish to serve alongside some yummy chicken enchiladas or tacos. If you really wanted, you could make a meal out of just the rice!
These are the only ingredients + some water, that you will need:

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and some black olives.....

Mexican Rice
1 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
1 C. long grain rice, uncooked
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 C. chopped onion
1/2 C. Tomato Juice (i.e. V-8)
1 1/2 C. Chicken Broth (I used the chicken bouillon and mix w/ warm water to make the broth)
DIRECTIONS: Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add rice and cook for a few minutes, add garlic salt and cumin. Add onion and continue cooking until tender. Add tomato juice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for approx. 20 minutes. Serve!!

Happy Eating!
