Mexican Rice is a simple dish to make and you don’t even have to use oil or nasty chicken broth, making this uber healthy! I enjoy the texture of using brown rice but if you are a picky eater like my kids and hubby then use white rice and you still have a healthy side dish. I like to serve this along side my Vegan Crunch Wrap and Black Bean Guacamole.
Our kids are still in the low heat category when it comes to Mexican food but we like a little more heat. I cook up the veggies normally then add some canned green chilis and fresh jalapeños to our so everyone is happy! There is always a way to satisfy everyone.

- Organic brown rice is my favorite rice to use in this recipe but if you prefer white rice Jasmine white rice is amazing.
- Cooking brown rice seems to take FOREVER, but once I got my Instant Pot I was able to use the rice setting of just 12 minutes and the rice is perfect! AAAAHHHH, I love my Instant Pot!
