Heat the cooking oil in a medium pot using medium high heat.
Add the rice to the saucepan, and cook the rice until the rice is light golden brown. This takes about 5 minutes. (Make sure to stir the rice frequently, and don’t let the rice burn!)
Next add the cumin and garlic to the pot, and cook the rice mixture for a few seconds (make sure to stir frequently).
Then, add the chicken broth, Rotel, and Knorr bouillon powder to the pot. Stir the mixture.
Bring the mixture to a boil.
Once the mixture comes to a boil, lower the heat to low, and cover the pot with a lid.
Cook the rice mixture for 20 minutes.
After the rice finishes cooking, remove rice from heat, and let the rice sit for 10 minutes before opening lid.
Lightly fluff rice with a fork before serving.
