Fiesta Rice

Fiesta Rice is really easy. Pair with a black beans and you’ve got the perfect side dishes for your Mexican meal.

Brown rice works best for texture (and is healthier anyway). Because there are only two people in my home, I like to use 1 tub of Minute Ready to Serve Rice . It says it’s only 1 serving but I find for this recipe it’s perfect for 2.

The two recipes below use ingredients that are probably sitting in our fridge or pantry when preparing for a Mexican dish!

Recipe 1
1 tub Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice, fixed according to directions
1 jar chunky salsa

Pour rice into bowl. Mix a few of tablespoons of salsa into the rice and reheat. You’ll be surprised by how good it is.

Recipe 2
1 tub Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice, fixed according to directions
2-3 tablespoons of tomato sauce
1/4 (or so) teaspoon of Taco Seasoning
a pinch of garlic salt

Pour rice into bowl. Add all ingredients, mix well, and reheat.

This recipe tastes a lot like Applebee’s fiesta rice that comes with Fiesta Lime Chicken. To make it more authentic, shop up some red and green bell pepper, add a little oil to a pan, and heat until veggies are slightly soft. Then add a spoonful or two of sweet kernel corn.
