In large skillet, brown rice in oil. Add remaining ingredients, let simmer, covered over low heat for 25 minutes or until rice is tender. I like to add a can of chopped green chiles after the rice is browned along with other ingredients. When done, transfer to an 8x8 casserole dish. Top with 1 1/2 c. grated monterey jack cheese. Microwave at high right before serving to melt cheese.
