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. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

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.

Healthy brown rice instead of boring white bread stuffing. Crisp apples complement the nutty flavor of the brown rice and bran.
