If you have ever attempted cooking your favourite Mexican rice at home and failed, this one is a quick and easy version of it. This Mexican rice is cooked with garlic, onion, red capsicum and carrots and then simmered with vegetable stock. This dish can be a very healthy option for lunch as well as dinner as it is rich nutrients. Carrots contain antioxidants and vitamin A, which is vital for protecting your body from the free radical damage. The capsicum adds just more than colour and crunch to this dish. It is a rich source of fibre that can keep your digestive system in good health. The cayenne in capsicum can also maintain your blood sugar level and prevent diabetes. Here are more reasons to add capsicum to your dishes.
