Bajio Sweet rice

1/2-1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 of a white onion, chopped (add more or less to your taste or use green onion)
1/2 bunch 
fresh cilantro
1 1/3 cups raw 
white rice
3 cups 
chicken broth
1/4-1/2 cup 
white sugar

Put a little oil in bottom of pan (maybe about 1/2-1 tablespoon).
Saute chopped onion until translucent. Add the chopped cilantro (no big stems) and saute a minute more.
Add the rice, cooking until it is light brown (being careful not to burn).
Combine the chicken broth and sugar, letting sugar dissolve. Then stir into rice until combined. Bring to a boil.
Cover and let cook on low, med-low until rice is done, about 25-30 minutes.

Fluff with a fork before serving.

You can put it in burritos or eat it as a side. Any way you eat this it's going to be heavenly.
