    1.5 cup White Rice, long grain,
    1 (12 oz) can Mexican Stewed tomatoes
    1/2 cup, chopped Onion
    3 cloves garlic
    2 Chicken bouillon cubes or you can use fat free chicken stock and omit the water
    2 cups, Water
    1/4 cup, chopped Cilantro


I like a cast-iron skillet for this recipe-- or use a non-stick frying pan with lid

Coat pan with cooking spray
On med-high heat start sautéing rice in pan
Once all the rice has turned white (no longer translucent)
Add onions and garlic
Sautee everything until the rice is light brown
Add can of dice tomatoes
Add water w/(dissolved) bullion or chicken stock
Stir to combine ingredients
Sprinkle top with chopped cilantro
Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is done and no liquid is left.
Can be served alone or topped with cheese (calories are with/out cheese).
