OK, so you didn't watch yesterday's video on how to cook perfect brown rice and now you've got a batch of sticky rice and don't know what to do with it.
Say hello to your new best friend Mexican Rice Balls. They fit perfectly in little hands and feature a chunk of gooey cheese the center which is like a surprise in every bite. Make these ahead of time, put them in the fridge, and just pop a few in the microwave or a steamer whenever you hear grumbling tummies in your house.
Accompaniments: * If you already have sticky rice on hand, just mix in the spices before forming around cheese cubes ** You can also use 1 tablespoon mexican seasoning instead of the cumin, paprika, oregano and garlic powder *** If not ready to eat immediately, place rice balls in refrigerator for up to two days. When ready to eat, proceed from step 3.
