Serves six:

6 tortillas (burrito-sized)

Do you use a thick or more watery salsa

Hello there! I used a thick but not chunky salsa.

I think your pictures are cool. I'm from the UK,

didn't get to finish that thought! what I was going to say was, we don't have rice a roni in the UK, is it a pre-flavoured rice?

elewis03 (author)tbarrett62014-02-26

Hi! It is a pre-flavored rice. It's Spanish or Mexican flavored. If you're a vegetarian, beware of ingredients. Some pre-flavored rice has dried chicken in them.

If you don't have access to pre-flavored rice, I bet you could just cook some brown rice and season it to your liking.
