Vegan Mexican Rice

Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Vegan

I just love Mexican food.  It’s spicy and has a great kick to it.  It also packs a huge punch of flavor.  So I decided to make this wonderful Vegan Mexican Rice by using diced onions, jalapeno pepper, garlic, and diced organic tomatoes to name a few ingredients.  The flavor of this Mexican rice was delicious!

I love to buy my fresh veggies from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  Their selection is outstanding.  If you’d like to see some great kitchen essentials, check out the ones I use on my Shop Page.
