Recipe: Mexican Seasoned Rice

This recipe for Mexican Seasoned Rice is a quick and easy addition to lots of meals…. not to be confused with Mexican or Spanish Rice… that recipe is also delicious… made with onion, garlic and tomatoes…. this recipe simple combines Seasoning and Rice… that’s it…

Last week Warren took me to a Mexican place… yes… menu was on the wall… but… the food was excellent… not your Taco Bell type… not that taco Bell is necessarily bad… my son loves some of their stuff… I’m more of a purist.. I like the actual sit down places… but.. this place made awesome Burritos.. they had a wide variety of all kinds of things to have them stuff with… one of which was seasoned rice…

It was Burrito night in our household…. So … of course I had to make all the options…. And what better way to season Rice than with my Fajita Seasoning… a stellar thought… it was just perfect… and actually… this rice will go perfectly with a grilled steak too.


I used minute rice… you make equal parts rice and water… so this recipe is easy to alter to the number of servings you need.

If you haven’t tried my homemade Fajita Seasoning.. you should… it’s easy to make … you can adjust the heat… and it’s cheaper than those packets…

I hope you enjoy this really easy recipe!
