This classic almost-from-scratch dish is a great side for a Mexican meal.
1/2 c chopped white onion
1 cup white rice
1- 7 oz. can of salsa of your choice
Preheat oven to 350F
Sweat onions in oil over medium heat in an ovenproof saucepan. Add rice and cook until it turns a milky white color. Dump in salsa and stir for a moment while it sears. Fill salsa can with water and add that, plus a bit of salt. Bring to the boil, and scrape down any remaining grains of rice. Cover pan tightly and bake for about 25 minutes, tasting for doneness. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
