Taco/Mexican Red Rice

I can finally make mexican red rice! I love this stuff, it's great in burritos (simply add cooked beans, cheese and wrap up in a tortilla). Or you can put fried eggs on it for breakfast. It's great to have on hand for making up quick meals.  I have made it twice or three times in the past couple weeks-- it's that good.


Saute 1 diced white/yellow onion and 3 crushed garlic cloves in olive oil or coconut oil until starting to brown.

Add spices:
1-2 tsp cayenne or other mild chili pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano

Add 1 C long grain white rice and toast for 60 seconds.

Pour in 2-4 TB tomato paste and enough water for the rice to cook. Stir, cover and set stove to low and let cook. You can add more water if it gets too dry before the rice is fully cooked.

Taste and season with more salt if necessary.
