  2. Its simple to make. The trick to Mexican rice is to use a long grain rice. It is also fried in oil prior to cooking.

    Here is how I make it:

    Fry a cup of rice in a pan with canola oil until it is golden brown. Do not burn it. Stir constantly during the cooking process.

    In a sauce pan, add the rice with 1 cup chicken stock, 1 cup plain tomato sauce, a little granulated garlic and white pepper. Add some sauted onions and garlic, too.

    Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and put a lid on the pan and let it cook for about 20 min. Do not lift the lid and do not stir. Let it sit 5 min., fluff and serve.
