In a frying pan, brown rice in oil to make it toasty. Add onions and garlic, stirring often until onions are beginning to turn translucent. Lightly spray inner part of a rice cooker with cooking spray and add rice/onion mixture. Combine remaining ingredients, set cooker to cook. When cooker turns to warm setting, give a stir and return cover. Let stand for another 10 minutes. Serve with fresh cilantro and sour cream or shredded cheese if desired.
