Step 1

Heat the oil in a skillet. Add onion, sauté the onion over medium heat until soft and transparent. Add garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes more.

Step 2

Add the dry rice, continue to stir and cook for about 2 minutes to toast the rice (you should hear the rice making crackling noises). Mix in taco seasoning and oregano. Add the broth or water and then stir. Add some salt and pepper, stir again.

Step 3

Cover with a tight fitting lid. Turn the heat up slightly and bring to a boil. As soon as it reaches a full boil, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 4

After 15 minutes, turn the heat off and let it sit for 10 minutes without removing the lid. After letting it rest for 10 minutes, fluff the rice with a fork. Sprinkle sliced green onions and chopped tomatoes over top just before serving.
