Tacos. Nothing fancy. Ground beef, package mix, crispy shells, etc.

Cheesy Fiesta Rice

1 T margarine or butter
NOT 1/2 cup chopped onion
1-2 cloves chopped garlic
1 1/4 cup long grain rice (raw)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 cans (29 ounces) chicken broth
1 can diced green chilies
1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. DO NOT add onion. Add garlic and rice, cook 3-5 minutes stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender.

Stir in salt, chili powder, chicken broth, and green chilies. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.

Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and tomato. Garnish with cilantro.

Makes 8 1/2-cup servings.

(Recipe found on back of a bag of cheese.....I'll swipe them anywhere!)
