Growing up, I always loved going to Mexican restaurants because of how delicious the Mexican rice was. We never ate Mexican rice in my home, and I assumed the reason why was because it must have been very complicated to make, or required some type of "secret ingredient". Little did I know just how easy Mexican Rice is to make on your own (With just two lines of instructions!). Now, Malissa and I are always just 20 minutes away from enjoying restaurant quality Mexican rice, which has now become the popular side to many of our favorite homemade Mexican Dishes.
2 Cups water
2 Cups rice (regular brown rice does not work! Use quick brown rice or white)
1 ½ Cups Salsa
2 teaspoons salt
Dash of Chili Powder
In a medium pot or saucepan, bring water to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, add all ingredients, cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes. Easy!
