For a flavor-packed homestyle meal that’s ready in less than 30 minutes, why not turn to a classic dish? Transform fluffy Mahatma® White Rice into a flavorful meal; Spanish rice can be served as a light meal, a side dish, or packed into an enchilada or taco.
In large saucepan, heat butter and oil over medium heat; sauté rice for 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. Add onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, chili powder, salt and pepper; continue to sauté for 3 to 5 minutes or until onions are softened.
Stir in broth, salsa and lemon juice; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Remove from heat; fluff with fork. Sprinkle with cilantro.
For a one-pot meal, sear chicken thighs in saucepan with onions.
If you aren’t a fan of spicy food, don’t let the chili in chili powder frighten you off. Chili powder isn’t all that spicy; it’s a spiced blend consisting mostly of oregano, onion powder, cumin, paprika – and a dash of cayenne.
So, if you don’t have a bottle of chili powder – and don’t particularly feel like grabbing all those bottles and creating your own mix – simply swap in some taco seasoning. You won’t regret keeping a few pouches of seasoning in the pantry.
For a quick and simple meal, these Jasmine Rice & Quinoa Taco Bowls are still full of flavor thanks in part to those convenient packets. Or in case of an emergency, like unexpected guests dropping in, you’ll be able to whip up this Loaded Nacho Rice Dip as a quick appetizer.
