            -1 3/4 chicken stock

   Place butter and oil in 2-quart pan over medium heat.  When butter is
   melted, add onion and garlic; cook until onion is tender.
   
   Add rice; cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until rice looks milky
   and opaque.
   
   Add salt, oregano, cumin, tumeric, and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil.
   cover; reduce heat and simmer 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender and all
   liquid is absorbed.
   
   Peel and pit avocado; dice.  Fluff up rice with fork; add avocado and toss
   gently.  Turn off heat; let stand 5 minutes before serving.
   
   NOTES:  I have also made this with peeled, seeded, diced tomatoes instead
   of avocado.
