Mealthy Tip

This recipe is pretty healthy but to make it even healthier, increase the amount of veggies or cook it with additional vegetables, like corn, bell peppers, and diced tomatoes. To make it even healthier, use brown rice instead of white rice, just be sure to add more cooking time. Leftovers freeze well too. Just spoon into a resealable bag, seal, and lay flat in the freezer. This makes it flat for easy storage and you can easily break off a piece if you don't want to defrost the whole bag.

This is your typical Mexican Rice Recipe. This rice goes really well with almost any meat dish. You have to try it if you have never tasted this rice side.

Delicious Mexican rice! Not like the restaurant-style red rice, this version is packed with delicious carrots and peas. Perfect for a side dish to an authentic Mexican dinner. Lots of really good flavor, and definitely must try!
