Fajitas and Yellow Rice

ImageWho doesn’t love Fajitas.. Peppers, onions, mushrooms, cheese, salsa and sour cream.. Yummy 🙂
I like to have a side dish to go with them and rice usually is what I go for.. But white rice is boring, and we had Mexican rice on Saturday so, I found this recipe for Yellow rice on Pintrest.. It was really tasty and easy to make.. Here is how I did it 🙂

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
2 small onions, sliced
6 mushrooms, sliced
2 palm full of Chili Powder
1 palm full of cumin
1/4tsp cayenne pepper
2tbsp olive oil
1c shredded cheese of your choice
package of tortillas 

Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add the chicken and just brown the outside.. Then add the veggies, cook for about 2 min and add spices.. Mix all together and finish cooking.. Serve on tortillas and garnish with sour cream, cheese and salsa 🙂 

~Yellow Rice (compliments of The Family Kitchen)
1 1/2c long grain rice 
3c chicken stock
1tsp olive oil
1/2tsp turmeric 
1/4tsp smoked paprika
2tbsp onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
2 green onions, chopped for garnish


Rinse rice well and drain. Add all ingredients to a rice cooker, or a saucepan. If using the cook top method, bring to a boil over high heat turn burner to a simmer and cover with a tightly fitting lid. Leave for 15 minutes. Then remove pan from burner and turn burner off. Do not remove the lid during the cooking process. Let rice rest for another 15 minutes before serving, but remember do not remove the lid until it has rested.

I hope that you will try Yellow Rice in the future with your Mexican, Spanish or African inspired supper.
