Spicy mexican rice with chicken and tiger prawns
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a brilliantly simple recipe which can be made with fajitas for easy eating. It is also best made using fresh, juicy tiger prawns and a generous helping of jalapenos to give it that spicy kick - a real treat on a mid-week night.
