How to Make Cheesey Mexican Chicken and Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook your rice according to package directions (I sometimes do this the day before, or make extra to save for this dish).
  2. Chicken: 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!
  3. Add to your cooked rice: Rotel, 2 packages of taco seasoning mix, cooked diced chicken, and 3 cups of cheese.
  4. Place into a well greased 9 x 13 casserole dish, add the remaining cup of cheese, bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until bubbly.
  5. Serve with Tortilla chips, sour cream, corn and refried beans.
