2 Cups white rice, I used Jasmine but Long Grain works better
4 Cups broth, I used beef but prefer chicken or veggie, even water will work
1 6 Ounce can of tomato paste, you can half that if you like
2 Tablespoons olive oil, used to toast the rice
1 Teaspoon salt, check for salt after the broth goes in, you may need more
1 Teaspoon black pepper
1 Teaspoon cumin
1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
1 Teaspoon onion powder
1 Teaspoon oregano, Mexican oregano if you have it
1 Teaspoon brown sugar, optional but helps to balance the raw tomato flavor
A pinch of cayenne pepper, optional and if you like a little heat

Place a large pot on Med-High heat and add the olive oil, then the rice, making sure to mix them together and making sure the rice is coated in oil, then toast until slightly browned, should take around 10 mins. Lower the heat, and add the tomato paste, stirring constantly for around one min. Add the spice blend while still stirring for an additional 30 secs. Now add the broth, and check for salt by tasting, you may need more, start by adding a few pinches until you get the flavor you like. Bring to a hard or rapid boil and cover with a well fitting lid, then lower the heat to the lowest setting, or enough heat to continue to simmer the mixture. Cook on low for 20 mins, then fluff and serve. You can rest the rice for around 20 mins if you feel it needs to firm up.
