Taco Tuesday is quite the tradition at our house.  We switch it up, though.  One Tuesday might be tacos, another burritos, another Fajita Chicken Casserole, and even taco salads.  The one constant, despite the changing entree, is this Mexican Rice.  It is so easy and so delicious.  Like crazy easy.

I had tried what seemed like every Mexican rice mix and box at the grocery store but none of them tasted like the rice at our favorite local Mexican place.  This recipe tastes JUST like it, though.  We all absolutely love it.  And no matter what you serve it alongside, I’m betting your family will love it too.  Yeah, it’s easy, but its’ also delicious!  That’s a total win-win in my book!

    I was skeptical since it was so easy, but it really is GOOD! Will definitely be making this one a lot!

  2. This is a great recipe, so fast and easy! While the rice is cooking, dice up an onion and a bell pepper and cook them in a little bit of butter till soft. When the rice is done, add the veggie mixture to it. Fabulous! 🙂

  3. The timing was perfect! Made this last night to go with an enchilada casserole and it was fantastic and super easy! Will definitely make again…and I’m adopting your Taco Tuesday idea as well! Thank you!! 🙂
