READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by deborah.junger

Just a quick version of mexican rice I made tonight and it was pretty good. UPDATE: Sometimes instead of Chicken Stock I use tomato sauce to give it that "red mexican rice" look... it tastes pretty good that way too :)

Always looking for a quick and easy recipe to cook for one person, and this one sure hit the spot. Only changes I made were in using black beans and brown rice - which required additional broth. Heated left overs and wrapped in tortilla shell and added grated cheese (YUM!!). Thanks for the recipe.
