This rice is so flavorful and it’s an awesome accompaniment to grilled meats & chicken. The whole house smells so fragrant while this is simmering on the stove. Just use a great creole seasoning & fresh herbs. Yum!
Mexican rice is so flavorful and with a little prep, very easy to make. The trick is to sauté the green pepper, onion and garlic in oil prior to adding the rice. It really enhances the flavor of the rice. I love to serve this rice with smoked meats, in addition to other traditional Mexican dishes.
It’s still not fall in San Antonio, but I couldn’t wait to prepare a fall dish another day. I served this light side dish with two meals. I made Chicken Shawarma one day, and falafel on another. This rice was super delicious with both entrees. Now, all I need is a cool breeze!
