Simple Southwest Rice

So, here’s a secret.  I’m not nearly as fabulous a cook as my friends think. I just know a lot of little tricks in the kitchen, and this is one.  I keep Norpac vegetables in my freezer because they save me mega amounts of time washing, peeling, and dicing. I add them to soups, stews, casseroles and recipes like this easy rice side dish.  It takes our Baja Vegetable Roast and pairs them with rice, chicken broth, and a handful of seasonings to make a simple side.

You can also stir this recipe into seasoned taco meat to stretch it out for a delicious burrito filling. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

    Please ask the chef in your video to use a heat proof spatula instead of a fork to scoop anything from a non-stick coated skillet, the metal fork in the chicken breast cooking lesson is a no no she shouldn’t teach anyone to do.
