Mexican Fried Rice
  • olive oil
  • 2-3 cups leftover Mexican rice (or leftover rice plus a generous splash of tomato juice)
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 ounces green chiles, drained
  • 2-4 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • green onions for garnish
  1. Heat a cast iron skillet (or your skillet/pan of choice) to medium high.
  2. Add a glug of olive oil and your rice.
  3. Once the rice is sufficiently dried out, toss in your black beans, tomatoes, chiles and taco seasoning.
  4. Stir fry the rice until it's the perfect fried rice consistency (usually about 15 minutes, depending on how dry your rice started out).
  5. Top with green onions and serve.
