School is back in session here in California and that means that the leisurely days of summer vacation are over. We are back to the grind and now I need to make sure I have easy dinners that I can throw together quickly that my entire family will enjoy. This Mexican Dirty Rice with Ground Beef is the perfect easy gluten free recipe. If you are looking for an easy gluten free main dish rice recipe then make sure to save this one!

To make this simple insanely easy recipe I used the Mahatma® Ready to Serve Rice in the Jasmine Cilantro Lime flavor and it was absolutely fabulous. It provided a Mexican style flavor with a citrus twist and the meat pulled it all together to turn it into a main dish.

Gluten Free Rice Recipes

Mahatma® is America’s favorite rice and I love that I can grab it at my local Walmart. The ready to serve pouches make it quick and easy to prepare without having to dirty another pan to cook the rice, plus if you are looking for a fast recipe, waiting on the rice to cook can feel very time consuming. For this recipe I just popped them in the microwave and added it into the meat mixture at the end. Easy!

The Mahatma® Ready to Serve Rice comes in other flavors too. They have regular Jasmin and Jasmin Garlic. So, if you are not looking for a Mexican style dirty rice then use one of the other two.
