How to Make Easy Mexican Rice


  1. Add your 2 Tbsp. canola oil to a saucepan and heat. Once your oil is hot add your 2 cups of Long Gain White rice to hot oil and brown. I usally brown my rice very well. Once rice is browned add your 4 1/2 cups of hot water, use caution for very hot steam. Once you have added your water return to a high flame, add your Knorrs bullion and black pepper. Cover till a rolling boil then turn all the way down to a very low flame and cook. Do not stir just leave lid on and cook on low. Once done I sprinkle chopped green onions on top and stir in.
