Mexican Rice

I don't know where I found this recipe, but I changed it from the original one. This is my favorite mexican rice and side dish to taquitos, burritos or tacos along with an easy salad.

1 cup long grain rice
2 TBS olive oil
1 small can tomato juice
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cumin

Heat oil in skillet and saute rice until a light tan color. Add cumin, garlic, tomato juice and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
