Salsa Rice

This simple side dish is the perfect accompaniment to Tex-Mex faire. We used our Black Bean & Corn Salsa to infuse each bite with flavor. This savory salsa  is a combination of vine-ripe tomatoes, garlic, onions, jalapeños, yellow sweet corn, black beans, red wine, vinegar, and Southwest spices.

Serves 4 


1 1/2 tablespoons Gil’s Key Lime Olive Oil 

1 cup long grain white rice 

2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced 

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 

1/2 teaspoon San Fran Sea Salt 

Pinch of ground turmeric 

1 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth 

Fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish 


Heat oils in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the rice, and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly golden brown. Add the garlic, cumin, salt, and turmeric, and sauté for 1 minute more. Add the salsa and broth, stir to combine, and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Fluff with a fork and set aside, away from the heat, to rest for 5 minutes. Garnish rice with cilantro before serving.
