MEXICAN RICE

1/2 onion, chopped fine
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup rice
vegetarian broth
1 can chopped Mexican-style tomatoes
2-3 fresh green chiles, chopped (or 1 can)
1-2 tablespoons powdered cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion until translucent, but not brown. Add rice and garlic.
Saute together until rice is golden.

Drain liquid from tomatoes into meauring cup. Add enough broth to
meet the amount suggested for your boiling your rice. Top it off
with just a tablespoon or two extra water/broth.

Add tomatoes and broth to your rice. Stir in green chiles and
cumin, with a few dashes of salt and pepper. Stir until blended
together. Cover the pan, then simmer for required amount of time.

Fluff rice, then serve as is or topped with a tiny bit of grated
cheese.

VARIATIONS: to make this hotter, use extra hot green chiles. You
can also add jalapenos. To make it milder, use red and/or green
bell peppers instead of chiles. You can also add fresh/canned
corn, beans (but just a few), carrots, green onions, or other
veggies you might like. Put them in at the same time as the broth,
so they steam with the rice. If you put beans, or several veggies,
in the rice, make sure you add a bit more water/broth (the beans
and veggies will absorb some of the water needed by the rice).
