I originally created this Mexican Rice recipe for my Mom. She requested it to go with Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers and Deconstructed Mexican Street Corn. Those are her two favorite recipes on the blog!

If you don’t know my Mom yet, allow me to introduce you. Her name is Muffet, yes like the one that sat on the tuffet! She’s always been a huge supporter of the blog.

She traveled with me on my cookbook tour. She flies from Oklahoma to San Diego to assist me on big shoot days. And most recently she took over my e-mail newsletter.

That’s right, sign up at the bottom of this post to receive e-mails from my Mom! Each e-mail includes a new recipe and a word from Momma Bond. She also throws in a picture of me as a kid, our family or our adventures together!

If you were talking to Momma Bond right now, she would tell you that she loves this recipe for three reasons. It’s easy to make, light on the spice and deliciously flavorful!

If you love Mexican restaurants rice, you’re going to love this recipe!

The one pot meal phenomenon is alive and well in my house, because one pot = one dish to clean = happy Whitney 🙂

I’ve been making this One Pot Mexican Rice for years. It’s one of my Moms favorite recipes on the blog and it’s an awesome side dish for tacos, enchiladas or fajitas.

A few weeks ago I had the idea to turn it into a complete meal by adding chicken right into the dish.

Today is my 6 year blogiversary and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by sharing a new recipe twist on a classic blog favorite!

I introduced this One Pot Mexican Rice recipe in September 2014 and it’s been a favorite side dish every since! In our house, we love to eat it with Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers and Deconstructed Mexican Street Corn!

Since this side dish is one of the most popular recipes on the blog, I wanted to recreate it as a main dish, which gave me the inspiration for this Turkey Taco Rice Skillet!
