Mexican Beef & Rice Recipe
Category

This is simple, quick and family friendly dish for Mexican steak and rice that is ridiculously easy to make.

If you love the flavours of fajitas then this Mexican rice recipe is going to be a welcome addition to your cookbook. In the recipe below, we've used strips of quick frying steak but you could easily make this recipe using chicken or turkey steaks instead.

You'll notice there is white rice in the dish, but don't worry, you needn't be worried by the seemingly "high GI" of white rice. The GI value is more or less redundant when the food is eaten with other foods especially when the other foods provide a source of fibre, protein and fat.

If you're a fan of Mexican food then you'll want to cook our recipe for One-Pan Chicken Enchilada Rice. Seriously, it's delicious.
