Mexican Rice Remix!

 Hello my friends!  So good to have you back and to share another recipe.  If you have been with me a long time, you may remember my first Mexican Rice recipe... Still amazing, but I wanted to change it up a bit.  Change is good.  The older I get the harder it gets though!

This is a super easy recipe.  In no way do I claim it to be authentic, it is just what we love and that is all the authenticity I need on this one!  Do you all make Mexican Rice?  It is just a given for us on taco, enchilada, fajita, or quesadilla night, we have rice.  You probably add beans as well.  We aren't bean eaters in this house, but, if we were....I would add beans!

Here is this super easy and absolutely delicious recipe!

You will need:

  • 1 heaping cup of long grain rice
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (any color)
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon powder

In a higher sided skillet, add in olive oil.  Just enough to brown up the rice.  Add in rice and let it slowly begin to brown.  While it is doing that chop your peppers and tomato, add into rice.  Mix thoroughly and add in chicken boullion,  Mix to combine and add in tomato sauce, water and salsa.  Let come to a boil.   (You can also mix this together separately like I did)  Mix until completely combined and put the lid ON.  Turn your burner to SIMMER and DO NOT REMOVE the lid for 20 minutes!  When you remove your lid, your rice will be perfection.  Give it a stir and serve.  WHOA BABY!  Oh, it is so good!

I hope you enjoy and tag me on IG, FB or anywhere else if you make it!  I want to see those photos!
