I created this deliciously tasty baked Mexican rice recipe to celebrate National Rice Week and it’s incredibly tasty.
The recipe is super easy to make – firstly add the long grain rice, beans, veg and stock to a casserole dish and bake for 15 minutes. The long grain rice works brilliantly here, as it absorbs all the lovely flavours whilst baking.
In the mean time make a smokey tomato sauce with Mexican spices then add sauce to the rice and bake for a further 15 minutes until everything is absorbed and the rice is super tasty.
I love to serve with a fresh mango salsa which adds instant freshness and so much flavour. The whole dish is packed with flavour and perfect for the family.
I love cooking with rice as its probably the best store cupboard staple in my opinion as its incredibly versatile and nutritious.
I hope you really enjoy this delicious recipe and you can find more information here about how to Rice Up Your Life http://www.riceassociation.org.uk/
