Happy Cinco De Mayo! In honor of the special day we whipped up this fantastic dip. Mexican food is a staple at our house. We like to add grains to as many dishes as we can to incorporate the nutrition. Adding the rice brings a whole new level of flavor and texture. Give it a try! We think it is a perfect combination. Not too rich, nice and filling.
