Easy Mexican Rice Recipe

Easy Mexican Rice Recipe


1 cup uncooked rice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
1 medium onion, chopped (I like onions so I used a large one)
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
3/4 teaspoon chili powder


In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add rice and onion and cook (about 5-10 minutes) stirring occasionally, until rice is golden brown and onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender.
