We all need an easy meal every now and then. Even us folks who enjoy cooking. This Easy Mexican Red Rice was an easy fix while the hubby is away on business. I didn’t want to go out, or pick something up. I wanted to cook a meal, but with not a lot of hassle or dishes. Since the person that cooks usually doesn’t have to do the dishes in my house, but that won’t fly this time.
This recipe fit the bill perfectly! With just a few simple ingredients, and practically no chopping, dinner will be on your table in no time. And with no fuss. The main shortcut here is using jarred tomato salsa. I recommend Frontera Salsa brand.
This makes an easy side dish or make it a complete meal by mixing in some rotisserie chicken like I did. I also wanted to add a little freshness to the meal. so I added some sliced avocado, fresh jalapeno slices and a lime wedge. Have you had lime juice in your rice before? I have!!! And I love it! I also add it to sour cream when I am having tacos. Just a little bit of my Tex-Mex side coming out now. Mix it all together and your easy weeknight meal is ready to devour!
