    Mexican Rice

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 cups uncooked rice
    2 cans chicken broth
    1 tablespoon minced garlic (I actually use 2)
    2 cans (10 oz each) Rotel tomatoes...the hot ones
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    Heat oil on medium high heat in a large pan (I use a 4 qt).
    Add rice, and saute until light golden brown, about 5 minutes.
    Add 1 can of chicken broth and the garlic.
    Cook for about 2 minutes.
    Stir in remaining broth, tomatoes and spices.
    Bring to a boil.
    Cover and reduce heat to simmer.
    Allow to simmer for 25 minutes.
