“A simpler version of Mexican white rice.This is the way the DH and family make rice to go with mole and other dishes with rich sauces.The broth is taken directly from the pot of boiling chicken for the mole,or whatever other dish is being made.If you are using cold broth it needs to be heated up first.This is not a flavorful rice pilaf,but a softer rice dish that's almost soupy and only flavored by the broth and large chunks of tender garlic.If,like me,you prefer a drier ,fluffier texture,you can use only 4 cups of broth.”
