(NAPSI)—When it comes to creating a dish that’s nutritious, delicious, economical and a real crowd-pleaser, it’s a good idea to go with the grain. Grains of rice, that is.
Some rice, such as Texmati Brown Rice, is all natural and grown in the U.S. It’s a nutritious addition to many of your favorite dishes.
Rice can be a hearty part of a quick and easy soup that’s great as a light, one-dish dinner; the first course in an elaborate meal for many; or a nice, warming and wholesome treat to serve when the gang has gathered at your place to watch the game-or play one.
Make this Enchilada Rice Soup with low-fat ingredients to deliciously improve your family’s diet.
