Mexican restaurant-style rice


Servings: Makes 6-8 servings as a side

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

  • 2 Tbsps olive oil (or butter if you'd rather)
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 2 cloves garlic - smashed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup bottled taco sauce (Pick your fav; just make sure there's vinegar in it.)

  • Instructions:

    Add garlic and oil to a 3-4 qt pot. Steep on medium heat until the garlic just starts to sizzle. Stir in rice. Continue on medium heat 10-15 minutes until the rice starts to brown, stirring every two or three minutes. Stir salt and taco sauce into the water and add to the rice (mind the steam!). Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer on low for 20-25 minutes. Let sit for at least another 10 minutes covered off the heat before serving.
