Mexican Rice

Mexican rice is perfect for chicken fajita bowls and also for filling burritos. This recipe is one of the easiest I’ve ever made. I want to make sure you get the maximum flavour in your dishes without having to stand in front of the stove for hours every day. I think everyone wants that.
