Mexican Fried Rice

For Christmas I received a Blackstone Griddle.  It is the most used gift that I have ever received. I cook everything on it, from Japanese steakhouse fried rice to smash burgers. We love fried rice so much that I decided to come up with a recipe to go along with some Fajitas.  I combined some tomato sauce, chiles and seasonings to make some of the most delicious fried rice that I have ever had.  It is a huge hit at our house!
