When I was younger I LIVED off of boxed mexican rice. I loved the tang, the flavor and the comforting feeling of a big bowl of rice topped off with some cheese and sour cream- it was perfection! Of course as I spent more and more time in the kitchen, I played around with a ton of homemade versions and started to ditch the boxed stuff- especially because the homemade version wasn’t all that difficult.
I like to make this rice when I’m serving something simple for dinner like tacos or quesadillas- it just kind of evens the meal out and makes it a little more wholesome! I ate this for three days after I made it and it tastes so good with a little cheese sprinkled on top, so indulge a little! You can also add in other ingredients like black beans if you like or some more peppers. I kind of just work with what I have and it always turns out great!
Hope you guys enjoy this! ?
