2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup long grain white rice
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 16-oz. Jar ORTEGA® Thick & Chunky Salsa, medium
1 1/4 cups water
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed (optional)




MELT butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add rice, onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until rice is golden. Stir in salsa, water, carrot and peas.

Notes:
For a quick-cook Mexican Rice, use 4 cups instant rice instead of 1 cup long-grain white rice, and 2 1/2 cups water instead of 1 1/4 cups water. After salsa mixture comes to a boil, cook for length of time recommended on instant rice package.
