Keep in mind that if you choose a different type of rice than listed here you will want to adjust the amount of stock and the actual rice cooking time according to the directions for that type of rice.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and saute until slightly softened, about 1 to 2 minutes, add the garlic and saute for an additional minute, add the rice and sauté until the rice begins to lightly brown.
Pour chicken stock over the rice mixture and stir until it begins to boil, turn down heat to low, cover and simmer until the rice has absorbed the stock, about 18 to 20 minutes, fluff the rice with a fork and serve.

Add flavored boullion or spices to rice while cooking, to give it a different flavor. I've even added soups like vegetable for a great side dish.

Mix rice with salt and pepper. Layer rice, chilies, sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese in greased casserole until all ingredients are used, beginning and ending with rice. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
Great side dish! The beef consomme gives this great flavor! This is best with brown rice.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix all in 2 qt. casserole. Bake 1 hour, stirring once after 30 minutes.
