Tex-mex Rice

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
8 ingredients
6 servings
This is a version of rice that you find at a Tex-Mex restaurant. It is way easier than it looks and after you have made it once or twice - you can do it by heart. My kids love it and I love that I can sneak a few veggies in! Can be made vegan with veggie broth.
