Catholic Recipe: Mexican Rice

Cook rice in oil in frying pan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until each kernel is golden brown (be careful not to scorch). Add onion, garlic, and beef. Stir until meat is lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients; cook and stir 5 minutes longer. Pour into casserole; cover. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes Remove cover; bake 15 minutes longer.
