Twila's Easy Microwave Spanish Rice

I promised I would post this recipe after our "Fiesta party" last week.  No one could believe it was so easy and prepared in the microwave.  Hope you enjoy :D

Twila's Easy Microwave Spanish Rice
1 cup  rice (not instant rice) if you are watching your carbs use Uncle Ben's converted rice.
1 - 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon chicken base i.e. Tones  (or a dissolved  boillion cube)
1 can of your favorite salsa (I use the 7 oz Herdez Salsa Casera)
salt & pepper & chili powder to taste

in a microwave safe dish, add rice and just enough water to cover the rice, then stir in the chicken base or bouilliion).  Microwave uncovered  on high for 8 minutes or until water dissappears.  Take out and fluff up with fork and then cover with water again.  Microwave on high for another 5 minutes.

Fluff with fork - add chili powder, salt & pepper and can of salsa and stir with fork to mix.

Cook another 4=5 minutes and let stand for 5-10 minutes.  I sometimes let it stand for up to 15 minutes with the lid on.

Rice should be perfect!
