This is the perfect rice to celebrate Mexican week! Keeping with my continuous healthy theme lately, this rice is a great alternative to two or three tortillas. To increase the healthfulness EVEN more, make it with brown rice instead! Before I had ever made this recipe, I had always loved making MY version of Mexican Rice; rice in water spiked with two tablespoons of taco seasoning. Obviously, this is much healthier and much lighter - the perfect spring / summer accompaniment for any Cinco de Mayo gathering!
The other great benefit to this rice is how versatile it is! It forms the base for my next dinner (Thursday) and I even stirred it into the dinner I'm giving you all on Friday! Believe me when I tell you, you could eat it alone and simply enjoy a delicious dinner.
