Red Rice

Randal loves rice and would be perfectly happy eating the same kind of riceover and over.  I prefer to try new recipes so this is how we ended up with this red rice with dinner last week.  The Goya seasoning packets are new for us, but I actually did like them and they definitely provided the red colour to the red rice.

2 cups rice
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can tomato sauce
2 packets Goya sazon cilantro and tomato
1 tbsp Goya all purpose seasoning
1 can white beans
1/2 tsp dried oregano
3 cups water
2 tbsp oil

In a large frying pan add the oil and the diced onion, cook for a few minutes until onion softens.  Turn the heat to high add the rice and fry until the rice turns white.  Add in the tomato sauce, water, white beans, oregano and seasonings.  Cover the pan, reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender.
