Tasty Tuesday!!

Tasty Tuesday - Mexican Rice to go with last weeks Enchilada's

Here is what you'll need:
2 packs Sazon Goya
1 1/2 cup long grain rice 
3 or 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 onion finely chopped
3 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup frozen peas
Juice of lime
Soak rice in a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse in a strainer until the water runs clear. Let the rice continue to drain for 10 minutes.

Heat oil in heavy skillet. When hot, add the rice, stirring until the rice starts to become a golden color. Add the chopped onion and continue frying until the onion is clear and the rice a golden brown. Add chopped garlic and cook one minute longer. Add the chicken broth and 1 package of the Sazon powder and the peas. 
Let come to a full simmer, and then turn down to low, cover and let cook until all the liquid is absorbed. (about 20 minutes) Do not stir. Right before the liquid is absorbed, add the last package of anchiote and the lime juice. Stir briefly. 

Remove from burner and let stand a five minutes before serving.

You always make me hungry. If I lived in Van Wert I'd never have to cook...and you'd probably be so sick of me :)
