Mexican Rice

I have tried a few different recipes for Mexican rice but never had great success; I found a one on and made a few changes to it and it turned out just great! My husband even liked it, and he doesn't usually like Mexican rice. This is a big batch; you could easily halve it.

1/4 c vegetable oil (or lard)
2 1/2 c uncooked long-grain rice
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 c chopped onion
16 oz tomato sauce
4 c chicken broth
1/2 c water

Heat oil or lard in a large wok; add rice. Cook, stirring constantly, until golden. While rice is cooking, sprinkle with garlic, salt, and cumin. Stir in onions and cook until tender. Stir in tomato sauce, chicken broth, and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for about 25 minutes until done. Fluff with a fork. Enjoy!

Oh my! I love your blog, what fantastic ideas! The cakes are amazing and leaving me wondering why I'm so boring in the cake department.

And a children's summer cooking class, what a novel idea and I'm loving it! Please let me know if you try the 'dog bones' out, they are a lot of fun.
