Recipe Tips and Substitutions
Don't skip the browning of rice. This adds a toasty flavor that you won't get if you don't do it.
Stir the garlic and seasoning into the browned rice first to coat the rice with flavors.
Use hot water to create broth and pour hot broth (not cold) into the skillet for reduced steam.
Substitute your favorite salsa for the tomato sauce.
