I've found a fast and fantastic way to turn leftover rice into a spectacular side dish. I spice it up with Creole seasoning and pepper to give it a boost of flavor, then sprinkle it with paprika for color. Rest assured that no one will figure out the zippy combination is a "second-day dish".

"i needed a fast alternative to buying flavored rice at the grocery store which can get expensive. Feeding a large family can get expensive unless you get creative! I made this rice the night we were going to eat it. Creole Rice paired nicely with the pork chops that I had made. Great recipe!"
