Cooking up Memories: Mexican Rice

This recipe is another one from my old co-worker, Becky.  It is one of the few side dishes I had, so I just hadn't gotten around to putting it into our weekly meals until now.  But I decided to make it tonight along with a fajita recipe I had found.

Since it was raining for Memorial Day (and pretty much all of May) we couldn't use our grill, so I was excited to try a recipe I found on Pinterest for Easy Oven Fajitas.  The fajitas and the rice both turned out well and were a delicious dinner for us tonight.  Definitely something I will make again!
