.As we’ve shared before, both my family and Jamie’s love Mexican food. Mexican Rice is one of my favorite side dishes, as long as it’s moist and flavorful. Recently, I started making a healthier version by sprucing up a packaged brown rice. Sounds almost too simple to be true, but I can assure you it’s not! Just replace water with chicken broth, add some salsa, and you’ve got yourself a fast and easy side dish.
