COOK TIME
30 Min

We gave this recipe a little Southwestern flair by adding some Texas-inspired ingredients. Our Lone Star Rice is the perfect change-of-pace side dish to go with any of your favorite main dishes, like chicken or steak.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup long-grain or whole-grain rice, uncooked
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (16-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup mild picante sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallion
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat oil; sauté rice and garlic until rice is slightly browned.
     
  2. Add broth, cumin, and oregano and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in beans and remove from heat.
     
  3. Let stand, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Stir in picante sauce and scallions and serve.
     
Notes
  • If you prefer, instead of the kidney beans you can use pinto or black beans, or even black-eyed peas.
