Arroz Central Cafe
(Central Cafe Rice)
Serves 4 to 6
1 cup long grain rice
1/2 onion chopped (yellow or white)
1 4oz can green chile (drained)
1/2 can of 14.5 oz can chopped tomatos (drained)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon vegtable oil
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
One of the secrets to good Spanish Rice is to "brown" the rice first.(IMHO)...
Add the oil to the Sauce Pot (med heat)...pour in Rice and stir...rice will start to get chalk white....keep stiring occasionally until Rice becomes "toasted" (light brown)...add the onion....stir until onions are soft... add garlic,tomatos, green chiles, salt, and chicken stock, stir.....cover and simmer for about 20 minutes (like you would regular rice)
Still My Fav ~Jalapenos and cilantro added.
