This sweet potato Mexican rice was perfect for taco night! I was surprised at how good it was, and very true to flavor of real red rice. Using cumin made this side dish taste very authentic. Definitely will make again soon!

Very authentic tasting Spanish rice, you won't even hardly notice it's made with sweet potatoes! Incredible!

I never knew sweet potato rice was a thing, but I am now obsessed. This also tasted just like Spanish red rice like my grandmother used to make when I was a kid. Love!

I love Mexican red rice! I have the hardest time replicating the flavor, but this recipe was spot on. What I love most about using riced sweet potatoes (as opposed to cauliflower) is that it lasts longer and carries over to the next day much better. I would put cauliflower rice in the fridge and the next day it's gross and soggy. The sweet potato rice was good for another two days at least. I don't have a food processor so I just diced small, rice-like pieces. Such an easy recipe and great use of my spiralizer!
