Rice Pilaf Mix

Rice Pilaf is one of my favorite mixes to have in the pantry because it is so versatile as a side dish. It goes well with any Mexican dish, but also tastes great with casseroles or meat dishes. 

It takes only a few ingredients and is much less expensive than the rice mixes from the store. Once put together, it will store for well over a year. You can make this mix using brown rice also. You will need to increase the water you add to 2 ½ cups. It will take approx. 40–45 minutes for brown rice to be done. Any leftovers freeze well.

Rice Pilaf Mix

1 cup white rice
2 tsp chicken bouillon
2 cups water
1 tsp dried, minced garlic

1–2 Tbsp dehydrated bell pepper

2–3 Tbsp dried, minced onion

1–2 Tbsp wild rice, optional

Mix dry ingredients together in a ziplock bag. To make: Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down to low and simmer until rice is done and water is absorbed (approx. 20 minutes.)
