Today is Cinco de Mayo… Two nights ago I made Lime Chicken to kick off my week-long celebration, last night it was Mexican rice. Rice is great as a side dish or add beans and veggies and make it a meal. This is a quick and easy dish to make.

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice

1 c. uncooked rice, 1/2 c. olive oil, 2 c. chicken broth (vegetable broth for vegetarian version), 2 Tbs. minced onions, 2 tsp. garlic powder, 2 diced green chilies, 2 diced tomatoes, 2 c. black beans, a handful of fresh chopped cilantro

Saute rice and onions in olive oil, until browned. Add broth, garlic powder, chilies and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Add beans and cilantro and simmer about 5 more minutes, or until rice is tender. Serve hot.

What’s for dinner tonight?
