Top Ten Rice Recipes

Any of you that have been with me a while know how much I loooove rice.  I imagine anyone from the Low Country areas of South Carolina & Georgia or the bayous of Louisiana, Mississippi & Alabama can relate due to the rice plantations in our histories.

My poor ole Canadian husband never gets the potatoes he wants because I will pick rice over potatoes any day!  And, as I've told him countless times, if he wants potatoes, he is more than welcome to cook supper!  I'm not holding my breath waiting for that to happen ;)

Anywho, I thought I'd share with you the Top 10 Rice Recipes at South Your Mouth!

Main Dishes
1.   Chicken & Sausage Dirty Rice
2.   Stewed Beef & Rice
3.   Pork Chop & Rice Casserole (one of the most viewed recipes to date!)
4.   Chicken Pilau (my favorite!)
5.   Roasted Chicken & Greasy Rice

Side Dishes
6.   Greasy Rice
7.   Perfect White Rice - Every Time
8.   Rice Pilaf (Microwave or Stove-Top)
9.   Mexican Rice (Microwave or Stove-Top)
10. Brown Rice (Microwave or Stove-Top)


  1. Enjoy your blog and pinterest. You are hilarious! Think I want to try the Pilau. I find similarities in different cultures recipes very interesting, and the Pilau recipe is similar to a traditional mexican recipe for arroz con polo. Maybe you have this, but here is how it goes. (I never measure, sorry) I saute 1/2 to 1 full bag of long grain white rice in enough vegetable oil to moisten all the rice until is browned and nutty. Add diced tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and chicken broth to cover all. You will need some shredded chicken, so you can boil your own or be lazy like me and use rotissere from the store with canned broth. Reduce heat, cover and cook until liquid absorbed. Best not peak too often, stir only once. Maybe 20-25 minutes. Add chicken and stir in some frozen peas and carrots after rice is done. Traditionally, you' d have refried beans or black beans and corn tortillas. I prefer a salad as a side.

  2. Thanks so much for all the rice recipes. I've been looking for some better recipes for rice and these look great - I'm trying the Mexican rice tonight!

  3. I made this tonight and it was a huge hit. Hubby saw the ingredients and insisted on making a double batch for left overs and I'm glad we did. Simple and tasty, made exactly as written. We will definitely be making this on a routine basis! LOVE IT! Thanks Mandy!


Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
