One Pan Mexican Rice and Chicken Sausages

Mexican rice can easily be made right at home, and it tastes a million times better too!

Growing up in a very traditional Asian household, we had fried rice for dinner at least once a week. It was my mum’s go-to meal. I love fried rice but I realised it was time to change it up with this easy Chicken Sausages Mexican rice.

This Mexican rice comes together so easily and quickly in a single pot, which makes for an easy clean-up. You can also throw in your favourite veggies but I kept it simple with onion, bell peppers and red kidney beans. From there, the rice is simmered in tomato sauce and chicken stock, along with some cumin and chipotle powder for that extra kick of flavour.
