Mexican Rice

This week I’m making my extra fabulous Mexican rice for you. I love to use this rice as a side dish for my enchiladas and any other Mexican items but it’s also great as a side dish with steak or chicken. This recipe is special because I use Rotel tomatoes in it which gives it a nice little kick.  I hope you love it as much as I do.
