Mexican Rice

Mr.Picky makes these huge loaded burritos when he is on his own for dinner, which is not very often.  He often requests I buy boxes of Mexican Rice mix, to quickly add to these burritos.  I know those are just loaded with salt and who knows what else.

So I finally came up with a simply solution that doesn’t take him anymore time than a box.  The rice turned out great but was not as salty as he is used to but salt can always be added.  It was not too spicy for the kids and will be our quick rice side dish with mexican food from now on.

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice:

  • 1 cup white rice (medium or long)
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup yellow or red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • Taco seasoning recipe

Rinse rinse under the tap, until the water is almost clear.  Drain and add 1 1/2 cup water.

Add in the remaining ingredients bringing it all to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and cover, cook for about 16-20 minutes.
