Quick & Easy Cheesy Mexican Rice Recipe

I can't wait for you to make this recipe!

This is the best easy cheesy Mexican rice recipe. It is a restaurant-style Spanish rice recipe that comes together in no time. Serve this flavorful Mexican side dish with your favorite enchiladas or chimichangas. It is the perfect side for Taco Tuesday!

The process to make this cheesy Mexican rice recipe is quite simple. You’ll combine all ingredients, except for the cheese and garnish, in a large bowl and stir to combine.

Step 1

Stir in the cheese then transfer to a non-stick skillet and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Stir fairly often so the rice and cheese don’t stick to the pan. After transferring rice to a serving bowl, I like to garnish the top with a sprinkling of diced tomato, chopped cilantro and onion.
