Southwest Vegetables & Rice or Tortillas

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a yummy recipe that I decided to whip up after having southwest eggrolls! If you dont like white rice with out some form of sauce or 'liquidity' you may wish to eat this with a tortilla instead of rice. You can also use some salsa to add some zing and moisture to the rice! :-)

My daughter and I enjoyed this dish for lunch! She added a crumbled veggie burger to hers and we had this on tortillas. I also used sharp cheddar shredded cheese. Thanks love, for a lovely meal!
