Mexican Fire Rice

Mexican Fire Rice – Spicy Rice & Sausage

I love this Mexican Fire Rice dish. It’s a really filling slightly spicy rice and sausage dish that is baked with Picante sauce, sour cream, and cheese.


All of the ingredients are things that I regularly have on hand.

Tastes like a tamale kinda… or an enchilada, totally love this.

So easy and so good. You can use mild Picante sauce if you are a spicy wimp!
