Mexican Sour Cream Rice

Ron and I love mexican food. I think some of my favorite meals have been different variations on tacos and enchiladas. However, our sides are always pretty boring when we have a mexican. I saw a few different recipes for sour cream rice floating around and decided it would be perfect to serve with our beergartia tacos (recipe to come). I found and adapted this recipe from I made a few tweaks to the original and was very happy with the end result. I loved the creaminess of the rice, sweetness of the corn and the small bite from the pepperjack cheese.

A yummy side dish to serve along side our favorite tacos or enchiladas!
