Mexican Fried Rice

Mexican Fried Rice

This is a meal of left overs. Feel free to adjust portions/ingredients as you see fit. Can’t mess up fried rice!


  • 2 cups left over rice
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • few tbs chopped green onion (I keep them pre-chopped, in the freezer)
  • left over salsa (I used pineapple mango salsa)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder (not chili peppers, but a tex-mex blend with cumin, like Mexene)
  • garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup Mexican shredded cheese blend


  1. Heat large frying pan on medium high. Add a tbs of oil, heat until shimmering.
  2. Add cold left over rice to hot pan. Smoosh down with flat side of spatula to break down rice. Add chili powder and paprika. Stir and mix until rice becomes soft, ~3 minutes.
  3. Add shredded cheese to lightly beaten egg. Spoon a little hole in the rice and pour egg directly onto hot pan. Once bottom of egg begins to cook, stir lightly and begin mixing in rice. Salt with garlic salt to taste.
  4. Add green onion. Stir and mix until egg cooked through. Turn off heat.
  5. Mix in salsa. Serve.
