Mexican Green Rice

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and salt; cook about 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in broth and Spicy Salsa Verde; bring to boiling. Stir in uncooked rice; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. Remove pan from heat. Remove lid. Cover pan with a clean kitchen towel; replace lid. Let stand for 5 minutes to let the towel absorb any excess moisture. Remove lid and towel. Add cilantro; fluff rice with a fork.
