Mexican Couscous

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kendra

This is an excellent side dish for mexican meals. It's much quicker than rice and is also quite light and healthy. I originally found this recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens website, but have adapted it to fit our own preferences.

This is delicious! I added one whole carrot diced. And I put a little more cumin and chili powder...I'm from TX!
