Texas Rice

I had started out to make a skillet version of Hot Rice Casserole. Only to realize that I was out of plain rice. All I had was a box of Texas rice. Similar to rice-a-roni, it has rice and a seasoning packet and comes in a variety of flavors. In this recipe I used a flavor call Texzest. The spices being a blend of brown sugar, cumin, chile peppers and other seasonings. We really liked it and will be having this again soon!
1/2 lb ground turkey or lean ground beef
1 serrano pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter
11 oz box Texas rice, texzest flavor
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded cheese
2 Tbsp cilantro

In a large skillet cook the ground turkey and serrano pepper over med-high heat. Stir in salt. Add butter. When butter is melted, stir in the rice.
When rice begins to brown add the water and the seasoning packet from the rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream, top with shredded cheese, cover and heat until cheese is melted.
Top with the cilantro.
Serve and enjoy!
