Jalapeno Rice- Low Fat

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
2 servings
This is a super-easy, tasty, flavorful, low fat side dish that my husband & I concocted to go with our tequila lime marinated chicken (Lowry's and Super Target in the US carry a yummy 30 minute marinade). I've seen this posted with sour cream and/or cheese added, but we were going for low-fat here. Adding these would cut the heat of the peppers, but by removing many of the seeds we were able to make this just spicy enough while keeping it low fat.
