 Oh my, I realized I haven’t posted anything Tex-Mex in weeks!  YIKES!  Well, it’s not because we haven’t been eating any, that’s for sure.

If you’ve read very many of the recipes here you know I LOVE Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes.  It’s my go-to on a busy day, any time I’ve forgotten to get something out for dinner and lots of times just because it’s Tuesday…or Wednesday…or Thursday.  You get the picture.  

One of my goals here at O Taste and See is to encourage moms (or anyone else) to cook at home.  I know how busy life can be, but sitting down for dinner with your family is so important.  We make it a priority.. and that means I cook…or sometimes my girls.  It isn’t usually a big fancy meal, lots of times it’s something from the crock pot.  With the right ingredients and recipes a home cooked dinner can be on the table in less time than it takes to have pizza delivered or run to the drive thru.

A great pantry staple for a quick and easy dinner is Minute® Rice.  Great tasting, fluffy rice really is ready in five minutes!  

I grew up eating rice and we still eat rice almost every night. .  Minute® Rice has a whole family of products to make your life a little easier. White Rice is perfect for smothering with gravy (my personal favorite) or serving with stir fry.  Whole Grain Brown Rice or Multi-Grain Medley make a quick, easy and healthy addition to almost any dinner.  

Don’t have five minutes?  Minute® Ready to Serve Rice products are even faster!  They’re fully cooked, heat in the microwave in sixty seconds, eaten right out of the bowl and NO clean up!  Sounds ideal for a quick lunch or for the babysitter to prepare when mom and dad go out for “date night”.  

I made this Easy Tex-Mex Bake in less than thirty minutes, everyone LOVED it.  My daughter thought it would  be perfect for taking to our church fellowship meal….I I totally agreed!

  1. This Texas girl loves Tex-Mex and all of these ingredients are staple items in our pantry. This looks great and am adding it to my Pinterest board to make once the holidays are over. Thanks for sharing!

    Eating dinner at home is really such a pleasure. Since we are empty nesters, we often enjoy cooking together. Conversation at the dinner table is always the best!
    Sounds like a yummy recipe, right up our alley! Tex Mex is a nice change of pace right now. If the pantry has no rice, that may constitute an emergency!

      You’re not kidding about a rice emergency! We aren’t empty nesters yet. Our kids are 13-20 so we’re in that super busy season of life where everyone’s going a different direction. I’m thankful we’ve always made dinner together a priority, we need that time to catch up on each other. Thanks for stopping by!
