I'm always up for saving time in the kitchen when it comes to weeknight dinners, especially when after school activities and other errands have you running late some nights.

That's where this delicious rice side dish comes in handy!

This rice is made from simple ingredients, packed full of vegetables and can be made on a budget.

I usually prefer jasmine or basmati when I'm cooking rice, but instant rice is also delicious if you're needing something quick and easy.

We love this rice with tacos, burritos, tostadas or even enchiladas! I also love it re-heated with some sharp cheddar cheese sprinkled on top, then I scoop it up with some tortilla chips! It's a perfect lunch.

I'd also love to give it a try for breakfast with an over easy egg on top, or wrapped in a tortilla with some scrambled eggs, cheese and salsa!

I made this rice most recently with these Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas and both friends who took plates home absolutely loved it! It's defintely tried and true!
