Have I told you before I’m terrible at side dishes? I’m possibly the worst. I’m the one who serves my family the main dish and that’s it. I usually don’t even attempt a side. And if I do happen to think of adding a side it’s usually a salad. Completely unoriginal and takes half a second. This rice is an easy to make side dish that is sure to please. I know my whole family loved it. Plus it makes a large amount. Perfect for my large family, or for taking as a dish to a party or get together.
Am I weird that I find dicing veggies therapeutic. Did I tell you the hubs got me a new knife set for Valentine’s Day? He definitely knows the way to my heart. And I love it!! Everything is so much easier to cut now. Which makes the task of dicing veggies even more therapeutic. It’s helpful now that lil miss is super obsessed with playing with her “dollies”. She will sit at the table and play and have them talk to each other and sing and I get to do a few things that need to be done. As long as lil bubba man is sleeping. Which luckily he loves his naps. It’s sleeping at night that he dislikes.
Back to the rice. Perfect side dish. Lots of flavor. Oh yea, and you should definitely top it with some queso fresco, cilantro and some fresh lime juice. It’s perfection.
