Loaded Mexican Red Rice

6–8 Prep Time Unknown  Cook Time 27 minutes   Rated:

I love Mexican anything. I have a whole ebook dedicated to Mexican fare. You really should go and give it a whirl. It is of course free to Insiders!!

This is straight from that book, but I think it first appeared elsewhere. I cannot recall to be honest. I am nothing if not prolific. In fact, I plan to slow down a notch...so if you are thinking you need more Tenina...go and join me on the inside. That will not slow down at all. Promise.

In the meantime. Fiesta on!
