Patti's Mexican Rice

2 cups basmati rice
1/2 red onion -- minced
1 clove garlic -- minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup cilantro -- chopped
1 cup tomatoes -- chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cumin
2 cups water

Begin heating the olive oil in a skillet. When hot, add the onion and saute until translucent.

When the onions are cooked, add the garlic.

Then brown the rice. Once browned, add the water, cilantro, tomatoes and spices.

Bring to a boil, then cover and cook over low heat for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Serving Ideas : Instead of water, substitute with a vegetable or chicken broth.

For hotter rice, try adding 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper.
