Rice doesn't have to be boring!

I was on some grocery stores' sites, hoping to find that they listed their weekly sales online. Sadly, they don't--at least not the stores I usually shop at:o( But I did find this great list of ideas for jazzing up plain rice on H-E-B's site! I've always wanted to learn how to be more creative with rice, and this is some good inspiration. Following are a few of the ideas. Go to their site for the full list.

To hot cooked rice, add:

1. butter, lime juice and chopped cilantro

2. wild mushrooms sautéed in butter, thawed frozen petite peas and Parmesan cheese

3. diced tomatoes and basil pesto

4. sliced green onions, salted cashews, toasted sesame seeds and rice vinegar

5. dried cranberries, chopped pecans, sliced green onions and Parmesan cheese

6. red beans, coconut milk and chopped cilantro

7. thawed frozen peas and chopped smoked ham

8. grilled chicken strips cut into bite-sized pieces, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, basil pesto,
provolone cheese cubes and balsamic vinaigrette

9. chopped roasted chicken, toasted sliced almonds, sliced green onions and orange marmalade

10. black beans, salsa, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro

11. kidney beans, caramelized onions, sour cream and asiago cheese

12 smoked Gouda (cubed), smoked turkey breast cut into bite-size pieces, chopped tomatoes,
sliced red onion, ranch dressing and chopped cilantro
