I lost my previous recipe somehow so I re-typed it. This really is an easy recipe, anything you like can be added. I sometimes make it w/out the rice (omit rice & water) when I use it for tortilla filling if I don't want all the extra carbs.

Cheesy Mexican Chicken & Rice

4 chicken breasts – cooked & diced or shredded
1 jar salsa – any type you like
1 small can of chopped green chiles
2 c Mexican blend cheese (w/out taco seasoning)
1 envelope taco seasoning (it’s great w/out the taco seasoning also)
½ - 1 T cumin
1 c Minute Rice, uncooked
1 c water

Add all ingredients except rice & 1 c cheese to a large pan (I use my chicken fryer – a large skillet w/ sides) and bring to a boil. Add rice, simmer until cooked. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top & heat until cheese melts.
Note: This is great eaten alone, w/ tortilla chips, or served on tortilla shells.
To freeze – Undercook rice, cool & put in freezer Ziploc bag (I double bag everything), remove all air & freeze flat. To reheat, thaw overnight in fridge or in microwave & heat on stovetop or in microwave.

Have a great day!
