TIPS:

  • It can also be used as a filling for Taco night along with some salsa, guacamole & sour cream.
  • If corn is frozen, add at last with beans, if fresh, add at the same time as bell pepper.
  • Recipe itself is spicy, so reduce if you cannot take the Mexican heat.
  • I used long white grain rice, however, it will turn out to be equally tasty with any other rice.
  • You can also top it with cheddar cheese.
