Mexican White Rice

Taco Mania makes the best rice. It is white, no peas, carrots or tomatoes. Just white and packed with flavor. Here is my attempt at Mexican White Rice. My family has been making rice in the microwave for years. This recipe adapts easily to the microwave. I hope you enjoy it.

Mexican White Rice (Microwave)
Serves 8


Olive oil cooking spray
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups long grain white rice
4 cups chicken broth
1 tsp salt
1 celery stalk, cut in half
1 jalapeno, pierced with a knife twice
1 stem cilantro, plus more for garnish


Spray a 2 quart round casserole with lid with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic, microwave on high covered for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and add all other ingredients, stir to combine. Place two layers of paper towel between casserole and lid, microwave on high for 7-1/2 minutes. Microwave another 22 minutes at 50% power. Remove pepper, celery and cilantro. Fluff with a fork, serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
