What better to go with some nice, spicy, Taco Wings? Why, some “Creamy Cheesy Taco Rice”, of course! 😉
Since the wings and drummies that we bought were jurassic in size, I thought that they’d be better for an actual meal, rather than any type of appetizer. So, while my Taco Wings were baking, I decided to make a kind of cheesy rice dish to go alongside!
I’m not much for boxed mixes when I can just whip up something just as easy homemade, and I happened to have a dab of Queso Blanco Velveeta that was just screaming to be used up!
So, rice and cheese seemed like a great start to me! Who doesn’t love rice swimming in cheese, right? 😀
Perfect for your Pinterest board!
I added in a nice amount of spices, cheese, jalapeños, butter, onions, taco sauce and some sour cream for extra flavor and creaminess, and this dish turned out delicious!! Much better than any boxed mix! And just as simple, quick, and easy, using real rice and you get to control the heat and salt with much more limited preservatives!!
So if you’re in search of a fun side dish to go along with any Mexican-style meal such as Taco Wings, Tacos, Wet Burritos, Grilled Steak Tacos, Enchiladas Suizas, Chimichangas, or your own favorite, you’ll want to print, save, or Pin this for safe keeping!
Enjoy! And I hope this makes it to your table soon for Taco Night!
