Mexican Fiesta Update

Oops! I forgot to include the recipe for my rice. Here it is.

Mexican Rice

1 cup white or brown rice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 jalapeño pepper finely diced
½ medium yellow onion, finely diced
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons tomato paste

In a medium sauce pan with a lid, add the rice, and vegetable oil. With the flame on medium-high toast the rice stirring constantly. (It will burn quickly when it gets hot.)
Add the jalapeño and onion and cook about 2 minutes. Add the water, salt and tomato paste. Stir well.

Cover and turn the heat to low and cover. Simmer until all the water is absorbed about 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
