Bajio Sweet Rice

Yummy rice recipe from my sister-in-law, Paige

1/2 - 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 - 1 white onion, chopped
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 1/3 cup white rice, uncooked
3 cups chicken broth
1/4-1/2 cup white sugar

Warm oil in bottom of pan over medium heat. Sautee chopped onion until translucent. Add chopped cilantro (avoid large stems) and sautee for another minute. Add rice, cooking until golden brown -- be careful not to burn.

In a separate bowl, combine the chicken broth and sugar, letting sugar dissolve. Stir broth and sugar mixture into rice. Bring to a boil. Cover and let simmer on low until rice is done, about 25-30 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
