This recipe is adapted from one that I found on Pinterest. I made some additions and changes to it.

I used RoTel Original brand tomatoes with green chiles. It was pretty spicy. Next time I make this, I will use the mild tomatoes. We did not top ours with sour cream, but I imagine it would be good that way. I also think this would be great to wrap in a flour tortilla and eat like a burrito.

  • 2Heat a large skillet over medium high heat; add olive oil and swirl to coat bottom of skillet.
  • 3When pan is hot, add the seasoned chicken and cook until no longer pink, stirring often.
  • 4Stir in the uncooked rice, can of tomatoes with green chiles, tomato sauce and water. Bring to a boil then cover.
  • 5Reduce heat and allow to cook about 15 minutes or until rice is almost tender, stirring occasionally so rice does not stick to bottom of skillet.
  • 6Add beans and corn kernels. Continue cooking another 5-10 minutes or until rice is tender and vegetables are heated through.
  • 7Once rice is cooked, remove from heat, top with a handful of cheese and cover. Allow to sit about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with a dollop of sour cream and serve.
