The other day I made chicken fajitas and of course the only side dish I could think to make with those is rice. So sticking with my pledge to eliminate boxed, pre-packaged foods from our lives, I found a great recipe to make my own homemade Mexican Rice.
And boy am I glad to have found this easy rice recipe. This Mexican rice has flavor galore! A lot more flavor than the packet and boxed versions.
Even though it only calls for 1 cup of dry rice, you end up with a saucepan full of rice. I think next time I will make half of the recipe for just the two of us.
