There’s nothing like a great Mexican Red Rice on your plate when you’re having Taco Tuesday or any other Mexican or Southwestern dinner. There’s a reason so many of us at home either skip it altogether or turn to a mix – after all, why put effort into a dish that even at restaurants is sometimes lackluster and gets picked at or pushed aside. This Instant Pot Mexican Red Rice is going to rock your world – or at least get you some fab Mexican Red Rice on the table!
As a Grandma (the littles call me “Amma”) I had kind of forgotten about some of the challenges in getting everyone “on board” with dinner. Especially now that I’m day to day with six very opinionated eaters. Gyudon Japanese Beef & Rice Bowls is something I trialed this week while the kids were gone and I think it’s going to be a winner.
If you’re looking for a good, fast, easy family friendly recipe, you just can’t go wrong with this Stuffed Bell Pepper Skillet. That is if the kids will eat bell peppers!
Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
I’m a huge fan of rice pilaf, especially ones with wild rice in them. Now, I might be able to claim that’s coz I’m from Minnesota, you betcha, which for decades was the bastion of wild rice. Truth be told, it’s because I’m a child of the 1960s and wild rice pilaf was served at so many restaurants, especially with kebabs which became wildly popular around that time period. Now I make Instant Pot Wild Rice Pilaf and it’s a game-changer.
