Homemade rice a roni


This makes enough rice to feed a crowd. It is very good and tastes better than the boxed mix.
1/3 cup orzo pasta

1 cup long grain rice

2 tablespoons butter

2 chicken bouillon cubes

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

2 3/4 cups water


In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter with the rice and orzo. Stir constantly until browned.

Add in the seasonings and water. Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat to low. Simmer covered for 20 minutes or until all moisture is absorbed.
