Mexi Rice is an easy, delicious, budget-friendly recipe that is a great side dish or even main meal. It goes perfectly with out Mexican spiced meals as a side dish, or some extra ingredients and eat this warm, filling, rice dish on it’s own.
I’ve been wanting to share this recipe for a while now. It has become very popular in our house this winter. It’s easy to make, budget friendly, can be adapted to suit your tastes and it’s really yummy… But it’s not very pretty.
I think my food photography has come a long way since the first time I shared a recipe here, but I still haven’t quite figured out how to photograph food that is… well… all kinda chucked in together and looks like mush. Even with an artfully placed garnish of spring onion Mexi Rice still doesn’t look great in the photos.
So forgive me for the less than perfect photos, but I promise this easy Mexi Rice tastes so much better than it looks!
Mexi rice makes a great side dish or add some chicken to make it a total meal on it’s own. We often use it to fill tortillas and make meat-free burritos for nights when we need a quick easy dinner that can be eaten on the go. No matter how you eat it, you definitely need to add some cheese!
I use our homemade taco seasoning, but you cane use any seasoning you like. Add extra chilli if you like it really hit and spicy.
Are your kids like mine and love anything thing with ‘Mexican’ flavours?
