This rice is my new staple to go with anything I make that is Mexican! Really, Really good!!
My husband said it turned out really well. He was raised on real mexican food so that's a compliment. I didn't add the jalapeno pepper due to little ones and I was worried it would make it too spicy. The tomato and cheese I just left out. It was still really good. I'll definately make this again. It was so fast thanks to the instant brown rice which is all I have in my cupboard.
One of the tastiest Mexican rice recipes I have come across, we very much enjpyed it!! I had no jalapeno peppers in, but did have some jalapeno havarti cheese, so used extra green bell pepper, (had no red), with the jalapeno cheese. Turned out wonderful !! Thanks for posting!
