Cheesy Jalapeno Rice

Derived from Mexico, Jalapeno’s are loaded with Vitamin C- yes more than an orange! When the seeds of the pepper are used, they make food spicier. So if you are not crazy about spicy food, just don’t use the seeds! The cheesy flavor comes from every vegan’s favorite addition- nutritional yeast! This rice so good and pairs well with my Spicy Zucchinni recipe and my Cool Cucumber-Mint Salad  to balance all of the heat!
