Mexican Rice with Chips and Salsa.

Mexican Rice with Chips and Salsa.

Mexican rice is simple to make, yet packed with zesty flavors. 

This rice is loaded with beans and peppers. I decided to put a twist on this dish by serving it with chips and salsa. 

I use long-grain white rice, but you can use any rice. To make this dish a full meal, add some protein of your choice. I added roasted Paneer Chunks.
