Meatless Monday Mexican Rice Skillet Meal

Jan 12th

12b6a22619efe68ab13f5349252018efThis meal is perfect for my family. It is SUPER EASY, quick and only involves one dish! I am a big fan of the taste and textures of Mexican style dishes. This kind of meal makes my husband forget, for a moment, that there is not a nice juicy Ribeye  steak on his plate. If you are not concerned about calories you can serve with chips and salsa and garnish with guacamole and sour cream. If you want to you can just use a ripe avocado to add some creamy texture to this dish but no matter how you choose to serve it I hope that you find it satisfying and balanced between healthy and tasty.
