Easy Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice! I’m weird when it comes to Mexican food. Some may say that I’m picky. One thing I do like is Mexican rice, especially when I make it myself.


Mexican Rice


We were making enchilada’s for dinner the other day and I felt like we needed a side. The reason I only like things I make myself, is because then I know everything that’s in it. In my opinion, I make the best Mexican food, because I love the way I make it.

I know that may sound weird and also a little egotistical but it’s the way I feel. I only started liking Mexican when I got pregnant with Grey so this is all really new to me.
