This is the way I was taught to make my rice by my mom and grandmom but, throughout the years I've changed the way I make my rice--for example: When my kids were young they didn't like to see anything in the rice but rice (bits of onion, tomato etc) so, I used powder onion,cumin,garlic etc and as they grew I would add mixed veg.for added nutrition, and other times I omitted the tomato sause,cook rice as directed but at the end of the 20 min. of cooking I would add the cheese of my liking and let sit in the coveded pot for 5-10 min. and gently mix all together. The things you can add to this rice is endless. Just adjust the liquid accordingly. Sometines I add a few spoonfuls extra of liquid for a moister rice specially if adding a veggie that absorbs more liquid.
Instead of tomato sauce you can add your favorite salsa for an added kick. Try different things just keep with the rice/liquid ratio 1 part rice 2 parts liquid. ENJOY
