“This is my personal recipe I make for when I cook Tex-Mex for family and friends. It is great! I prefer brown rice to white for health reasons but white rice can be used. Brown rice tends to be firmer and harder to get done so with brown rice you want to let it sit longer to absorb the liquid or you will get hard rice.”
