This lime-infused twist on the traditional Mexican Fried Rice was something I threw together for taco night and my wife loved it so much she suggested I had to write it up as a recipe! What I found neat about this, is it honestly spurred from the leftover items I found in the fridge, but it really came together just right.
I wanted to add some frozen corn and tomato to this as well, but didn’t in hopes that the kids would eat it this way (too much goodness might scare them away ha!). And now that I made it this way, I’m not sure that I want to change this as the fried rice came out just right. But feel free to experiment as you’d like.
Mexican Fried Rice Meal Plan Ideas
Mexican fried rice is a great compliment to any Mexican meal (did someone say home made taquitos??? yum!!!) or even eat this by itself. It’s a rather hearty rice dish, but to add some more protein, toss in some simple crock pot shredded chicken.
