Quick and Easy Mexican Rice

Quick and Easy Mexican Rice

This recipe is incredibly easy but more importantly, delicious. I’m from Texas, and Tex-Mex is a main food group. Here is a way you can have it at home to go with Taco Tuesday! 

I add it with my Baja Fish Tacos and Pico de Gallo for a Taco Tuesday theme!
