This simple Mexican rice recipe transforms your plain white rice into a vibrant and flavorful side dish that's perfect for Taco Tuesday or anytime Mexican cuisine is on the menu. Our quick Mexican rice comes together beautifully with a simple combination of ingredients you may already have stocked in your pantry, including tomato sauce, onion salt and ground cumin. Making this rice dish is a breeze — with just five minutes of prep time, all you need to do is toss everything into a saucepan, give it a quick stir and let it simmer. We love serving this zesty rice alongside a plate of barbacoa, chicken or pork street tacos (especially with our homemade taco seasoning!) and tasty accompaniments like black beans, guacamole and pico de gallo for the ultimate Mexican-inspired meal. It's also just as delicious incorporated into breakfast burritos, steak fajitas or tortilla soup, or simply to use up leftover protein for a quick and easy weeknight entrée. Photo credit: Amy Johnson from She Wears Many Hats.
