Rice cooked with chicken or beef broth instead of water makes a tasty dish. The addition of tomatoes, onions, and garlic makes it truly delicious. Rice goes with almost anything. This is a very good way to enjoy it.

I like to heat up a bowl of this rice, add a couple of poached eggs over the top, and it makes a delicious breakfast or lunch.
