I’m pretty sure that every meal could be tacos, and I’d be a happy camper. Of course, tacos can be pretty much anything stuffed inside a tortilla. My husband always laughs when I say that we’re having tacos for dinner because he says that doesn’t mean anything… what’s inside these tacos?
Well, I love this Chipotle Seasoned Rice as a super easy side dish for taco night. Of course, this goes really well in a taco as well! And it smells so good as it cooks with all those spices simmering away on the stove.
I’ve made this Chipotle Seasoned Rice with white rice or brown rice, or a combination of both. It kind of depends on my mood, what’s in the cupboard, or who’s eating it. My husband prefers white rice, and I prefer brown rice. But, I have found that he’s just fine with equal parts white and brown. If you use all brown rice, check it at the end of the 20 minutes cooking time to see if it needs additional water and cooking time, as brown rice will often need a little bit more of both to be done.
