Mexican Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jake Wheeler

This easy mexican rice side dish is made with rice, onion, green bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, and spices. It is way better than a lot of the rice served in many restaurants in my opinion, and couldn't be easier!

Great recipe and easy, too. I made one change-we don't care for green bell pepper, so I subbed a diced jalapeno. This dish went well with enchiladas. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.
