Mexican Brown Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Suzy_Q

Delicious as a side dish to Mexican fare or as a vegetarian taco filling. Easy, cheap and healthy with tons of flavor. My extremely picky boyfriend not only ate this but actually complimented me on it! You may use fresh onion if you like but picky bf doesn't like it so I use the powder. This is also nice garnished with fresh cilantro if you have it.

this was outstanding.. despite the last and only reviews.... the flavor was great and spices were wonderful..i did omitt the hot peppers and replaced them with a can of mild green chilies.. i made the rice for my homemade enchiladas and it was a big hit for a family gathering. Only negative is it takes a long time to cook... but well worth it. cory Wisconsin.
