I heart Tex Mex!
I had never heard of Tex Mex food before I moved to Texas. When I tried it for the first time, I was hooked. I mean, what’s not to love about grilled fajitas, cheesy quesadillas and chips and salsa!
Living in Texas means that you automatically have some kind of Tex Mex food every week. One of the sides that usually comes with a Tex Mex meal is Spanish rice. It’s basically white rice that has been cooked in tomatoes, spices and broth to give a flavorful accompaniment to your favorite entree.
Since I’ve begun my healthier eating and cooking journey, I’ve been using more quinoa, and less rice, in my meals. Because of this, I wanted to make a version of Spanish rice but using quinoa instead.
