your recipes a little extra kick. howard is here in the mister food test kitchen with a skillit dinner that you will love. "today we're revealing the secret ingredient that makes this rice dish so incredible. what do you think it could be? have you ever eaten something, loved it, yet you couldn't quite figure out what made it taste so good. was it a certain spice or how it was prepared? well, today's recipe has a secret ingredient that turns an ordinary side dish into an extraordinary one. and let me tell you ... as always it's really easy. while cooking some long grain rice like we would normally do, we saut some garlic in a bit of olive oil for a couple of minutes just to bring out the nutty flavor. then we toss in a couple of tomatoes that we've chunked up and cook it until they start to break up. now all we do is add the rice to the skillet along with some sliced salt and pepper. once that's all mixed, we add our secret ingredient - some ranch dressing - and once it's mixed through, we're done. you see the dressing not only gives this lots of flavor, it also makes it creamy. and when this for the first asking, "what's in this that makes it taste them . it's our little secret. i do hope get the recipe for skillet rice," so everyone will love thanks to our secret ingredient. i'm howard in the mr. food test kitchen, and we'll see you back here tomorrow
