Easy Mexican Rice
10" dutch oven

1 small can tomato sauce (about 1/2-3/4 cup)
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
Heat the oil over a full spread of coals and saute the rice until lightly browned. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, remove a few coals, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Serves 4.
Everyone was starving so I couldn't get a picture of this one!
I wouldn't make this recipe to use as a side dish. I have much better Mexican Rice recipes. However, it was perfect to use as another layer in this dish or in burritos and such. It adds texture and flavor without being overpowering. In that way, its a great recipe. My family really liked adding the rice to the dish. I'm going to give this one a B.
