Mexican Browned Rice

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add rice. Cook, stirring often, until browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add red onion, jalapeno and 1 green onion. Stir well. Cook until red onion is softened, about 4 minutes.


Stir in broth. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, until rice is just tender and broth absorbed, about 15 minutes. Seaspon with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in remaining green onions and jalapeno seeds to taste (they add the heat). Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serve hot.

Browning the rice adds color and a slightly nutty taste.
