If you read through to the end of the post, you could be $100 richer! You (yes, YOU) have the chance to win a $100 Visa gift card. Wouldn't some extra money be nice right now?

If you are a frequent reader, you know that I LOVE easy recipes. On most nights, I throw together dinners that are so easy it almost feels like I'm cheating. This delicious dinner was an off-the-cuff creation that was ridiculously easy, thanks to the Success® Rice that I threw into it.

Success Rice is a no-mess, no-measure, boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time and is ready in only TEN MINUTES. The white and brown rice can sit for up to 30 minutes before being served, making it virtually foolproof. It is available in grocery retailers nationwide with an average price of $2.35 (for White and Brown) or $2.45 (for Jasmine and Basmati), making it accessible and affordable.

There are four varieties available, including Success Whole Grain Brown Rice, Success White Rice, as well as globally inspired aromatic varieties such as Success Jasmine Rice or Success Basmati Rice. Try your own twist on one of your favorite recipes by swapping an aromatic variety into some of your go-to rice dishes. Learn more about the different varieties here.
