Cheesy Baked Mexican Rice is a simple side dish perfect for any Mexican meal.
My family loves all kinds of Mexican food. You will often find it on our menu plan because it is a meal everyone enjoys. One of the things I enjoy serving with Mexican food is rice. I often make a simple Mexican rice, but sometimes I like to change it up with something a little different like this cheesy baked Mexican rice I am sharing today.
