Whenever we eat out at a Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant, the kidlets pretty much only eat two things: beans and rice. They adore (ADORE) a big ol’ spoonful of refried beans and a side of orange colored rice. The simplest of foods.
But, as I have spent years learning, it isn’t easy learning how to make healthy versions of either side-dish. With a little recipe tweaking and a few crossed fingers, I finally have come up with healthier versions of Refried Beans and Spanish Rice. And …. they are kidlet-approved.
Tex-Mex Style Spanish Rice
(I have to thank Life as Mom for the inspiration for my Spanish Rice; I have changed the recipe a bit but she was the one who gave the tip of using tomato sauce to color and flavor the rice!)
