Southwestern Rice

Southwestern Rice

"'I created this zippy side dish after eating something similar at a restaurant. It complements any Tex-Mex meal wonderfully,' writes Michelle Dennis of Clarks Hill, Indiana. 'Sometimes I add cubes of grilled chicken breast to the rice to make it a meal in itself.'"
