Mexican Style Rice - Stovetop Method

This recipe produces a product similar to what is served in many Mexican restaurants in the US. Similar to our microwave version.

3/4 t tsp salt

1 t ground achiote

1 t ground cumin

2 T dry onion

1/4 t granulated garlic

Heat the oil in a saucepan, stir in the rice and salt, and cook over medium for a few minutes until the rice becomes opaque. Stir in the achiote, cumin, onion flakes, and garlic. Heat for 30 seconds and stir in the salsa and stock. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
