Golden Mexican Rice

Replace prepackaged rice mix with this simple homemade recipe. Chicken broth and seasonings give this rice its distinct taste and namesake. My family loves to top the Golden Mexican Rice with taco fixings or add the recipe to crunchy tacos to make the meat stretch further (even the picky eater likes tacos this way).

Golden Mexican Rice

3 cups uncooked white or brown rice
6 tablespoons butter
2 cups chicken broth
3 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon taco seasoning

Sauté rice with butter for 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
In large microwaveable dish; combine chicken broth, water and seasonings. Stir in rice mixture.
Microwave covered, on high power for 15 minutes.
Then reduce heat to 50% power for another 12 minutes.
Fluff with fork prior to serving.
