Love this recipe. I don't include salt because chances are you won't need it. Between the broth and the cheese the salt need is covered. If using as a side add a pinch bowl of salt at the table. If using as a addition to burritos grande you won't need the salt. Enjoy.

How to Make Tex-Mex Rice Rice Baby!


  1. In a small pan bring the broth to simmering.
