Expert Tips

  • Don’t have cooked white rice from leftovers or takeout? Frozen cooked white rice is a nice staple to keep in the freezer to help ease the dinner rush on weeknights.
  • Make it your own! Try adding Sriracha or chile garlic sauce; experiment with different shredded cheeses, or mix up the diced veggies for your own twist on this easy meal.
