*Mexican Rice

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks pretty good.

Mexican Rice

1 cup long grain brown rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 cube chicken bouillon
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, halved

Directions: In a medium sauce pan, cook rice in oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Pour in chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Stir in onion, green pepper, jalapeno, and diced tomato. Season with bouillon cube, salt and pepper, cumin, cilantro, and garlic. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes.

Hi Sandi,
This sounds really good, even something my husband will love. But, I have not been able to find a bouillon cube that doesn't have yeast or something bad in it. What brand do you recommend.
Also, is the chicken broth homemade, or bought? If it is bought, what brand do you recommend?
Thanks for a great recipe, I can't wait to try it too.
And thanks for being a good listener, and a friend. angel
Hi Lippy...I haven't found a chicken broth or bouillon cube that doesn't have yeast extract of some sort. But I did read somewhere that you can use the ones with yeast as long as it is boiled for several minutes and consumed while it is hot. Maybe we should ask Tarilee about this. I know Ashley makes her own homemade chicken stock, but I use too much of it to be doing that, and I have enough to do already. Don't we all? Yes No kidding.

And hey no problem, that is what we are here for...I have cried on a lot of shoulders here already and still do. I feel like I have made so many nice friends here, this place is a God send for me.

The powdered chicken bouillon I use is organic and made by HARVEST SUN. Good luck with it and take good care, Marie. Let me know how you make out with it, okie dokie.
