I love making my Mexican rice dish for a quick go-to meal. Most of the time I already have my rice steamed up from another day and all the other ingredients are as easy as opening a can, but this time I've made it even better and more exciting!
Jillzy's Mexican Rice
2 cups brown rice, steamed
1 can unseasoned black beans, drained and rinsed
2 Roma tomatoes, diced (or use a can of Ro-tel diced tomatoes and chilies with juice)
1 Jalapeno pepper, diced (more if you choose)
1 Baby red onion, diced
1 lime, juiced and zested
Salt & Pepper
Red pepper, optional
Steam rice according to directions. Once rice is done, add the tomato, pepper and onion. Add juice of the lime and zest. I eyeballed how much seasonings I wanted which was about a 1/2 tsp of ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, 1 tsp cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste and a dash of red pepper, 'cause I like it hot! I added about 2 spoonfuls of sour cream. Stir and enjoy!
Makes 4 servings as a side dish or 2 servings as a main dish.
Ground beef, corn, green pepper
This picture shows with the Ro-Tel tomatoes with chilies and ground beef. The fun thing about my rice dish is that you can add whatever you want and season to your own liking. It's the easiest go-to dish, it's filling and of course, gluten free! Enjoy!
