Authentic Mexican Rice


2 Cups of Rice
1/3 bottle of Sofrito
1 packet of Sazon
1 Chicken Bouillon cube
4 cups of water
1 clove of garlic
1/2 a small onion
1 teaspoon of Adobo
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

In a sauce pan heat olive oil on medium heat, add rice and toast.  Add 1/2 onion and glove of garlic ( you will leave these whole to remove once rice is done)
Once rice is toasted add 4 cups of water and chicken bouillon cube (make sure cube desolves all the way) Now at all the other ingredients.   And mix well. Bring to a soft boil.  Once it is boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cover with the lid.  It will take about 25-30 minutes to cook.  Keep your eye on it, once all the water is gone and it has steamed for a few minutes turn the heat off and let it sit for 20 minutes.

You can find most of the ingredients at your local grocery store in the mexican food aisle.
