Another great one from my grandmother’s recipe box! I adapted it though, but it sure was tasty, not to mention quick. My Littles, devoured it and were begging for more. Add cooked chicken, steak or ground beef and you’ll have yourself a meal in 30 minutes or less. Now that’s quick cookin’!
- 1 tablespoon butter, salted
- 1 1/4 cup long grain rice
- 1 3/4 cups water
- 2 teaspoons chicken instant bouillon & seasoning
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 tablespoon dried chopped onion
- (1) 14.5 oz. can stewed tomatoes
- (1) 4oz. can diced green chiles
In a medium sized pot, brown rice with butter over medium heat. Next add water stewed tomatoes and seasonings. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat. Simmer 25 minutes or until rice is done. (Don’t lift the lid.) Garnish with cheddar cheese, green onion and sour cream if desired.
Notes: To make a meal, stir in desired amount of cooked chicken, steak or ground beef; top with cheddar or Mexican cheese. Put in a 350 degree F. oven until cheese is melted. garnish with green onions, olives, fresh chopped cilantro and sour cream if desired.
