Mexican Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Shellbelle

This is a recipe that I made up because I was craving something a little spicy and was too lazy to go get take- out from my favorite Mexican restaurant.

I served this as a side to beef and bean enchiladas. I left out the black olives, and subbed 1 cup of salsa for the tomatoes. I let it sit about 5 minutes before I served and it got a little bit sticky, but it tasted really good. I topped each serving with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar. This is a really good, easy side dish :)
