Mexican Rice

This is one of our family’s favourite recipes. You can cook it as it is or you can mix some beef mince through when cooking the onions to give a different spin on it, you can make the topping more of a pizza style by adding pineapple or whatever you wish. It’s VERY adaptable and it packs well for a cold lunch the next day too!

Method

Preheat oven to 180C and spray a large roasting dish with oil.

Rinse rice and cook by packet instructions until almost soft, drain andΒ put into your chosen dish.

Meanwhile heat some Olive Oil in a large frying pan and cook onions until almost soft, add Basil and garlic and cook a further 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the Cumin, 3 TBS of the paprika, chilli flakes, ground chilli if using and the salt and pepper. Cook a further 1 minute stirring until fragrant. Remove from heat.

Put the rice into the roasting dish and add the rice mixture with the extra other 2 TBS of paprika and stir well. Mix in the tins of tomatoes and the Red kidney beans. Mix well so that everything is distributed evenly.

Pat down gently and smooth the top so that it is evenly sitting in the dish then cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove foil and top with the chopped tomatoes, olives, mixed capsicums and cheese. Bake a further 15 minutes until cheese is nicely melted then cut up and serve immediately.

 

Baked Fish

I love baked fish, it’s about the only way I find I can actually enjoy it. I don’t mind it in a stew but i’m not fond of it really. Made like this though and i’ll eat it forever very happily.

It looks like it’s served with a basic greek type of salad.
