This is a great alternative to Spanish rice and accompanies any Mexican food dish wonderfully. This was one of my favorites growing up.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add pasta and onion; cook, stirring constantly, until pasta is lightly browned and onions are translucent.
  2. Dissolve chicken bouillon into hot water. Pour into the pot with pasta. Stir in tomatoes, cilantro, cumin, garlic salt, and pepper. Cover and set heat to low. Simmer the pasta for 20 minutes until the water is almost gone. It will remain a little soupy.

I used 3 bouillon cubes instead of the powder and a little extra cumin and this was a very nice change from rice. Thanks!

This is a good starter recipe. Needs a little more flavor. A little adobo powder would be a great addition.

This was a good change of pace for side dish on Mexican night; however, I agree with the reviewers who say it needs more spice. I forgot to add some adobe powder as suggested and will give that a try.
