Creole Rice

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".

    The flavor of this rice is fantastic. I used the Creole Seasoning recipe found in the Editor's Note above: for 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning: 1/4 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and paprika; and a pinch each of dried thyme, ground cumin and cayenne pepper.

    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!
