Homemade Spanish Rice......Muy Buena!

We had friends over for MYOB (make your own burrito) night and I wanted to make spanish rice from scratch.  Everyone loved the rice and I thought I would share how to make it here.

I can't call this a recipe....it's more like a few easy steps:
  • Sautee 4 garlic gloves (fresh or frozen) in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until garlic is soft
  • Pour in two cups of UNCOOKED, DRY rice (I use brown rice) to the pan and allow that to sautee for 5 minutes
  • Add 32 ounces of chicken broth and 15 ounces of plain tomato sauce to the pan and bring it to a boil
  • Once the mixture has reached boiling point, lower the heat, cover your pan and allow rice to simmer for approximately one hour or until all of the liquid has cooked into the rice
