Keep an eye out for jalapeno thieves under the table!
Chop the vegetables. Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Add the onions, celery, garlic and rice. Saute until the rice just begins to brown, about 8-10 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat,
cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is done.
Aw, beautiful. Remember you do not stir rice, fluff it with a fork. This was a good flavorful rice that pairs well with all Mexican, Tex Mex dishes such as chile rellenos casserole.
