2 c
rice, uncooked
1 can(s)
rotel tomatoes
2 pkg
taco seasoning mix
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cooked
4 c
mexican blend cheese


1Cook your rice according to package directions (I sometimes do this the day before, or make extra to save for this dish).

2Chicken: I have used 1 can of chicken, cut up 2 grilled chicken breast from the night before, stir fried it, stewed it, and the precooked strips from the grocery store. This is good with anything!

3Add to your cooked rice: Rotel, 2 packages of taco seasoning mix, cooked diced chicken, and 3 cups of cheese.

4Place into a well greased 9 x 13 casserole dish, add the remaining cup of cheese, bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until bubbly.

5Serve with Tortilla chips, sour cream, corn and refried beans.
