WECO MAKES: Leftover Mexican Fried Rice

-Oil your rice, just enough to moisten it
-Heat your pan over high heat, add enough oil just to coat the pan, no puddles
-When the pan starts to smoke, add your rice. Flatten it out and let sit for a minute. Crackling is 👌🏻
-Toss (this is an opportunity to show off your #chefswag) or stir a few times. -Push rice aside, add your beef with some butter or oil. Stir around and let it caramelize
-Add beans and sweat them out. Mix until your happy with overall consistency
-Add fresh herbs (cilantro, basil, scallions, etc), stir, remove from heat and add a little more
-Season to taste, and top with salsa verse, some pickled onions, and lime juice!
-Eat it
-Retire to the couch and blissfully enter a food coma
