Mexican Rice

Talk about a simple meal! Especially if you do what I do and cook your rice in the crock pot. There are those nights when you don’t have time to spend on cooking a meal or you just really don’t want to. When those nights hit, this meal is for you!

I don’t like to use instant rice because there is a rather large taste difference, in my opinion. And since cooking it in the crock pot really is no extra work or waiting for you, I would personally recommend using “regular” rice.

I use my homemade tortillas, which can be made ahead of time. So if you are looking ahead to your week and know there is a night you’ll be too busy, or you just know you’ll be too tired after a long day, then you can pull some pre-made tortillas out of the fridge and warm them in the oven while you wait for dinner to come together.

1 cup brown rice

2 cups vegetable broth

  1. Put rice and broth in the crock pot and let it do the cooking for you. That way when you are ready to assemble dinner it’s practically already cooked!

3/4 cup salsa

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt

cooked rice

  1. Put all ingredients in a large skillet and stir until combined.
  2. Serve on a warmed tortilla.
