Though I love to serve zesty Mexican favorites like tacos and enchiladas, I’m always stumped about what to dish up on the side. Salad? Eh. Potatoes? Pass. Rice? Yea, but booorrrinnngg. I was looking for a way to jazz up rice that didn’t involve a lot of time and a hundred seasonings. I mean, have you seen some of the recipes out there for Mexican rice?

Maybe for a crowd I’ll go to that much effort, but we’re talkin’ weeknight meals here, people! It’s gotta be easy peasy, or it’s a no go.

Then it hit me – avocado rice! I’ve mixed creamy, luscious avocado into pasta before, why not rice? Combined with fresh lime juice, garlic and cumin powder, this avocado rice totally hits the spot for a standout side dish. If you’ve got the 6 ingredients and 10 minutes, you’ve got this oh-so-good Mexican rice done just in time for dinner.

Try it tonight!

    what a wonderful twist on rice using avocado. I have made sauces before from it but never really made it apart of rice before. This looks wonderful

    This is great! I struggle with what to serve with things too, normally just plain rice – a little lacklustre if I have a fab main!! Never thought to put avocado and lime with rice, but imagine it’s so fresh and creamy!
