Are you looking for an easy side dish for tonight’s Taco Tuesday celebration? Look no further than this Mexican rice, which is flavorful and so easy to make. I followed this recipe and it came out perfectly. It’s as easy as cooking rice in chicken stock with some garlic powder, cumin, a little butter, and salsa. Done.
You honestly just stick the ingredients in a pot and forget about it for 25 minutes. You don’t even need to stir it. Despite your lack of effort, you’ll still end up with rice that’s nice and fluffy.
This is perfect as a side dish, but I could also totally see it as part of a burrito filling. Maybe with some cilantro? And make sure you use salsa that’s at least medium heat. Mild just won’t cut it here. You need flava flav!
