Belinda's Mexican Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Belinda in Austin

This is Mexican rice, which doesn't have a tomato base, like Spanish rice. It is mild and light-tasting. I originally (incorrectly) posted this with a copycat recipe with Chili's Margarita chicken. It made it seem as though this was a copycat recipe; however, this is my own rice recipe, and I make it as a side for all of my Tex-Mex recipes!

We love Mexican and simple to make is even better, so this recipe really appealed to me. We tried it and we loved it! This is one we will make again and again as a side to our many Mexican entrees!
