Mexican Rice
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
4 servings
This side dish has all of the warm flavors that I love in Mexican food, without having to go to a restaraunt to get them. This isn't terribly spicy as written, but you may substitute a jalapeno for the bell pepper or add cayenne if you wish to bump up the heat.
