This delicious recipe became a staple recipe for me during the early weeks of university and I continued making it ever since. Rice, which is one of the cheapest ingredients on the supermarket shelf, is abundant in carbohydrates, including vitamins, minerals and organic components which help increase energy levels. Cook this up for lunch or dinner, it’s guaranteed to fill you up and give you the energy you need for the rest of the day.
Worried about protein deficiency? No need to. The delicious red kidney beans have got you covered. Red kidney beans, also known as the veggie protein powerhouse, serve as a great substitute for meat, proving 8.7g of protein per 100g – pretty impressive for a lil’ bean! The beans in this Mexican rice will provide a boost of protein to your body without you having to worry about high calories (and taste so good with all those spices too).
I love this dish as a main, served with some broccoli and some fat free green yoghurt, but feel free to explore all the possibilities this Spicy Mexican rice has to offer! Serve alongside some tacos, enchiladas or turn include it in a burrito – however you have it, the spices will certainly get your taste buds working,
This Spicy Mexican rice comes together so easily and quickly in just one pot – the less washing up the better, right? And with every ingredient being some of the cheapest you can find in the supermarket, you can enjoy this Mexican dish to your dinner table without breaking the bank!
