  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1/4 cup onion chopped
  • 1 and 1/2 cups instant white rice (I use Minute Rice)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the instant rice to the skillet and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth and salsa to the rice and stir well to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and remove from the heat. Cover with a lid and set aside until all of the liquid has absorbed about 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
