Spanish Rice

This is a very easy recipe and my kids love it.
1 1/2 cups rice (you may use white or brown)
1 can tomatoes (or fresh in summer)
1 can chicken broth (I use bouillon cubes/water)
2 garlic cloves
dehydrated onion or 1/2 chopped onion (I prefer dehydrated because I don't have to chop them and cry!)
Heat a few Tbls. (or less) of oil in a skillet, add rice and mix until light brown. In a blender mix 1 can of tomatoes, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 C. diced onion and 1 can of chicken broth. Add the liquid to the rice and cook. Add more water or chicken broth to bring the liquids to a total of 3 cups. Cook on stove - 15 to 20 minutes for white rice (brown rice takes about 1 hour).
When I do it I just mix equal parts of canned tomatoes and chicken broth - and then figure out how much rice to add. (2 parts liquid to 1 part rice)

Made this for part of dinner tonight and it is VERY good! I have sampled quite a bit before we all sit to eat. :)
