I'm in Vegas on a Speech Tournament and getting to stay with some dear old friends, buddies with whom we journeyed into Orthodoxy.
Dave & Kim make excellent Mexican food, and here's her recipe for rice:
Kim's Mexican Rice
1. Stir, over medium heat, 3 cloves of chopped garlic, 2 cups of rice, and a bit of oil until fragrant.
2. Add 2 cans chicken stock plus enough water, so that the liquid is an index finger's kunckle above the rice; boil until the liquid is almost down to the level of the rice.
3. Add chopped onions, dash of cumin, handful of chopped cilantro, salt and pepper, and can of diced tomatoes.
4. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer until rice is done.
