Not your Average Butter Rice

“Not your Average Butter Rice” is absolutely amazing. Anyone who knows me will agree that rice is my go to dinner source. It’s easy, it’s good and it is filling! Plus, it is completely cheap when you are feeding a large family of hungry animals. By animals I mean children.

I have really upped my rice game. I am such a rice fanatic.  Butter Rice, Fried Rice, Sticky Rice, you name it I cook it. One recipe I always get asked for is my Butter Rice recipe. This is not your average butter rice. It is a million times better than anything I’ve ever tried. Test it out and let me know what you think! Caution this is not for you if you don’t like good food! ha ha!

Not your Average Butter Rice

  • 5tbsp of butter (real legit butter)
  • 2 cups of extra long grain rice
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • chicken bouillon
  • Dash of onion salt.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

*I use 1 chicken bouillon cube to 3 1/2 cups of water. Let the cube dissolve*

Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add rice and sprinkle around onion salt. Saute for a few minutes (don’t let it turn brown). Add water / chicken bouillon. Stir and cover. Cook for about 15min -20min. Turn off the burner and let sit for 5 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste, Fluff rice and serve.

It is that simple. If you want to spice it up a bit, I always add dried cilantro leaves. I am telling you, you will NEVER go back to boring butter rice again. Best recipe ever!

Enjoy!

 

Boboli: The Green Bean Pizza

Growing up dinners were never really planned out like they are these days. Karen, my mom,  really tried her best at doing it but her hands were full. She was a mom, dad, friend, caretaker, maid, cook and a legit Pensions business owner. She was and still to this day is amazing!

Boboli The green Bean Pizza recipe
A new and delicious recipe for all pizza lovers. It is yummy and won’t disappoint. Boboli The Green Bean Pizza.

For dinner, we usually ate out  but honestly I’m not complaining about that. We were raised on El Charro bean burros, butter cheese crisps and chips with salsa. It was the Bomb! She also cooked. She is a great cook but raising 3 crazy girls on her own, cooking was never a priority. Why would it be when El Charro was down the street. She has made up this delicious recipe I am about to share with you. It is FAST and EASY!

My kids HATE anything I make for dinner. (read my post about Dinnertime Horror for a look into my Hell with picky children) However, when I make Boboli The Green Bean Pizza for dinner, they eat it all. In fact, it is a race to see who gets the last piece.

It is fast, easy and delicious!

Boboli: The Green Bean Pizza

(I recommend using a Pizza pan to get the best results. I ordered 2 of these Farberware Nonstick Bakeware pizza pans from amazon and absolutely love them!

Set oven to 375. Put Pizza crusts on pan and sprinkle shredded cheese all over them. Place pizzas in the oven. Allow the oven to warm while melting the cheese.

In the mean time. Cook ground beef. Season with Lawry’s salt and pepper. Drain grease. Add Prego sauce and let sit.

Layer: Once the cheese is melted add,

  1. 2 scoops of ground beef with sauce (or more for a meaty pizza)
  2. 1 can of drained green beans (make sure they are well drained. I always spread them out on a paper towel)
  3. Smother the top with cheese.

Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crusts are golden.

Don’t knock it until you try it. Make it for your family and let me know what you think!

Enjoy!!!
