In a mixing bowl whisk together water, Caldo de Tomate, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and chili powder, set aside. Drizzle oil into a non-stick saucepan and heat over medium high heat. Add rice and cook several minutes, stirring constantly until rice is slightly puffed and golden. Add water mixture to rice then stir and cover pan with lid. Reduce heat to low and allow rice to simmer for 25-30 minutes until water has been absorbed (you'll notice water bubbles stop coming to the surface). Remove from heat, fluff rice with a fork, cover with lid and allow to rest 5 minutes. Serve warm.
Ever cook or bake something new and exciting, only to forget about it and never get to make it again? Ever spent an hour sorting through scribbled on papers, trying to find that certain recipe? Ever forced yourself to turn off Food Network because your shopping list is already WAY too long? Or opened your kitchen cupboard to be greeted by an avalanche of cookbooks, pamphlets, and index cards?
This is the journey of a woman who loves to cook, bake, and try something new. Here is where I hope to get organized. Here is where I hope to become skilled. My adventures don't always work out (just ask the hubby), but they sure are fun!
