Who else loves Mexican food? We eat it several times a week at my house, and my whole family loves it! My twelve year old, in particular, would probably eat refried beans and Mexican rice for every meal if I let her. 🙂 From homemade tortillas to chicken enchiladas to tacos, there are so many delicious flavor combinations! This deliciously flavorful Mexican rice is the perfect side dish for any main dish, and we absolutely love it at my house. It’s simple to make using pantry staples, and makes enough for 3-4 meals for my family. The leftovers freeze well, so I nearly always have the freezer stocked with rice. It warms up easily in the microwave from frozen, and tastes just as good as it does fresh!

I’ve been making variations of this Mexican rice for years, but I feel like I have finally perfected the recipe to the way my family likes it. The rice comes out so tender and fluffy, and the combination of flavors is perfect. This rice is one of my favorite side dishes, hands down!
