We use this rice as the basis for so many things, and it is also great when eaten alone. The possibilities really are endless. We use it in wraps, as the foundation for any kind of taco or burrito type bowl, and it is also really great inside any enchilada or as a side dish to anything Mexican. It’s rice with just the right amount of tang and spice. I think that’s what we love about it.
Using ingredients you most likely have on hand, this can be ready in just a few minutes beyond what it takes to make the rice.
