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