Ciara's Mexican Rice

This is named after the mama that I got the recipe from on an online forum years ago.  It's a GREAT side dish and very easy to make - and MUCH healthier than those packets of rice mixes!!!

1 cup rice
3 Tbsp. oil
1 onion, diced small
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. chili powder (heaping)
4 oz. canned tomato sauce
2 1/4 cups water or chicken broth (broth is better)

In a large skillet, brown the rice in oil with the onions and garlic.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Let simmer, covered, over low heat for 25 minutes or until tender.  NO stirring!
