When I first came to the United States, one of the first cuisines I was introduced to was Mexican. I really enjoyed it then just as much as I enjoy it now. My first experience with Mexican cuisine was a little mom and pop restaurant that really made an extra effort and catered to our vegetarian preference. I decided to try out a recipe for a Mexican rice which is typically served as a side dish with Mexican meals. I especially enjoy this rice with cheese enchiladas and refried beans. Enjoy!
