Mexican Spiced Rice

Mexican Spiced Rice created by Bonnie G 2

Quick and simple way to add some extra flavor to plain old white rice. This was something I threw together to go with some fajitas I had made. I usually make this rice in my rice cooker, but it works on the stove top as well. I've used regular long grain rice, or parboiled, both work fine.

  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 -3 tablespoons dried onion flakes

  • 1 tablespoon spicy cajun seasoning (mine is not this brand, but I'm sure something with ingredients like Emeril's Essence will work just) (optional)
  • 14 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 4 -6 ounces chevre cheese (soft goat cheese)

directions

  • Mix dry rice, spices and dried onions.
  • Cook rice according to package directions, either on stove top or in rice cooker.

    So much better than plain rice, and the spices were right just the way listed. I only made one small change as I was trying to have things ready ahead of time for company on a Mexican Themed dinner. So after it was made (as directed) I put it all in a casserole dish, topped with more cheese, covered with foil and just heated it up when everyone arrived. Oh yes, I also used a Mexican blend cheese instead of goat as one of our guests doesn't do goat cheese.
