This little treasure has been one of my go-to’s lately when I need a quick grain to fill out a meal. I like to make a big batch and then use it throughout the week. It’s got great flavor and is fabulous served with all kinds of Mexican food. We have it with Taco Salad, on Crispy Beef and Bean Burritos, or as a side to a Nacho Bar. It would also be wonderful with Mexican Shredded Beef.

Hope you love it! Here’s to super easy recipes! A win all around.

PS…a recipe for these Blackened Peppers and Corn coming soon. 🙂
