I mentioned to Sheena a few weeks ago that I love the sweet rice from Bajio. The great sister she is..she found a recipe online for me to try. It is very good & easy! Thanks Sheena!
1/2 - 1 Tbsp oil
1/2 white onion, chopped (add more or less to taste)
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
1 1/3 cups white rice
3 cups chicken broth
1/4 - 1/2 cup white sugar
Put a little oil (1/2 -1 Tbsp) in the bottom of the pan.
Saute chopped onions until translucent.
Add the chopped cilantro (no big stems) and saute a minute more.
Add the rice, cooking until it is light brown. (Be careful not to burn.)
Combine the chicken broth and sugar, letting sugar dissolve. Then stir into rice until combined. Bring to a boil.
Cover and let cook on low or med low until rice is done, about 25 - 30 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
Original recipe from Apron Girls. I used only 1/4 cup of sugar because others commented that the rice was really sweet.
