I've found a fast and fantastic way to turn leftover rice into a spectacular side dish. I spice it up with Creole seasoning and pepper to give it a boost of flavor, then sprinkle it with paprika for color. Rest assured that no one will figure out the zippy combination is a "second-day dish".

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter; add Creole seasoning and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes. Stir in rice. Cover and heat through.
