This is an excellent authentic Mexican rice recipe (not to be confused with Spanish rice) that I make as a side dish with all of my Mexican dishes. The key is cooking the rice properly and using good quality chicken broth or stock.

1 cup long grain white rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
