Sometimes I just want a no-fuss, easy side dish for meals. I love cooking, but sometimes I get lazy. So, for “Mexican night,” I needed a simple side dish. I’m a huge fan of Mexican rice, so that seemed to be a perfect side dish. I have made a Mexican Rice Casserole before, but it requires slightly more work than I wanted to do. So, I decided to make a simplified Mexican rice side dish. This is so easy you only need one pot!
I am a fan of one pot meals. I’ve made one other on this blog, One Pot Garlic and White Cheddar Pasta, and it was tasty. One pot meals are wonderful because you cook everything in one pot. This makes doing dishes very easy. It also makes making dinner easy. So in the spirit of one pot dishes, I wanted to do one without pasta. I decided to make a dish that is hearty and delicious.
