Looking for the perfect Mexican rice dish? Look no further! This healthy one-pot recipe is simple to make and delicious. It really doesn’t get any easier – just throw everything in a pot, boil, and in 20 minutes you have the perfect side dish for any Mexican meal.


1 TBSP olive oil

1 cup long-grain rice (*not instant) I like use basmati or jasmine rice.

2 cups fat-free chicken broth

1 can black beans, drained.

1 can fiesta corn, drained

1 can diced tomatoes OR 1 cup salsa

1/4 cup taco sauce (optional if using salsa)

garlic salt to taste


Combine all ingredients in a large pot, starting with olive oil. Bring to boil, then turn the heat down, cover and simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until rice is tender.



I like to top with grilled chicken, fresh tomatoes, avocado, light sour cream, taco sauce and guacamole salsa.
