Anyone who knows me, knows that I used to hate Mexican food. Come to find out, I just don’t like beans very much. I’m really in my Mexican food era right now and last night we had some carne asada for dinner and I’m going to make burritos with the leftovers! I may have made too much rice but I’m so glad, because then I can make some freezer burritos for lunches. I like the idea of having a bunch of different kinds so that I will have them for lunch at work. I’m trying really hard to regulate my calorie intake and eat for fuel while still enjoying my food. It’s a hard balance to achieve, but we’re getting there. This Spanish Rice was awesome and will continue to be awesome in other meals. I doubled the recipe that’s why I have leftovers, because I was planning on using it for other recipes.
