Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

wondered if diced tomatoes could be added. terrific comments answered before i asked. will try mexi- corn, and hominy variations

I've been doing this forever but adding tomato with diced green chilies and mexi corn. AWESOME side dish even in thie simple form!

I thought I invented this recipe--have been making it for many years. Only difference is I use shredded sharp cheddar cheese. For extra flavor, cook the rice in chicken broth--yummy!!

This recipe has been a standby for me for years. It is easy and super. I often substitute 2 small cans of hominy for the rice---equally delicious!

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
