Mexican Rice with Lime

I've been trying a long time to make a good Mexican rice.  I did it yesterday to go along with tacos and I am putting the recipe here TODAY so I don't forget how I did it because this will be my new go-to rice recipe when I am cooking Mexican.

2 T oil
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
2 cups long grain rice
4 cups chicken broth
1 large tomato, chopped
1 and 1/2 small limes, juiced

Heat oil in large skillet.  Cook onion until transparent.  Add garlic and rice to onion.  Saute for a few minutes until rice begins to brown.  Add chicken broth (careful, it wants to splatter!) and tomato.  Cook, covered, on very low heat for 17-19 minutes or until rice is tender.  Stir in lime juice and serve.
