Seasoned Rice Recipe
This seasoned rice is something I use with a multitude of recipes. You could use this with your Chicken Stir-Fry, your burrito, tacos, or rice and beans bowl…or even as a side to complement any dish!
First, gather all of your amazing ingredients. I used white rice, ancho chile powder, lime juice, onion powder, chile with lemon, cumin, garlic, and fresh ground black pepper. Oh, and butter. Which didn’t make it into the picture, sawwy!
The first thing you want to do is get your cast iron skillet going, and once it’s hot, toss in a tablespoon or two of butter. Just enough to grease the pan with a little extra to sauté your garlic and onions! I like to use butter rather than oil, especially since the smoke point of olive oil is so low.
Get the garlic and onions cookin’ and wait till the onions are translucent to add in the rice. You might need to add some more butter at this point.
Pour your rice in, add your seasonings, and brown evenly.
Starting to look good!
At this point, pour in your broth, turn the heat down to low and cover! Simmer until the broth evaporates, taste, and season to your liking…then you’re done! Toss the rice and enjoy.
This recipe can be used a side dish for your ribs, a base for your chicken stir fry, or as a side for a delicious chicken recipe. Whatever way you decide to use this recipe, you will enjoy it because it’s flavorful and full of love. Well, I guess the love part depends on what you put into it. But even if you don’t put love into it, you’ll like it because it’s pretty darn good. Enjoy with your family and friends!
