First chicken is seasoned and sautéed with a packet of taco seasoning and cream cheese. Then, the rice is boiled in salsa, taco sauce, and chicken broth for a punch of piquant flavors. Toss in some beans and corn as well as your chicken and cream cheese mixture and when finished cooking garnish with your favorite taco toppings.
Some delicious topping options are chopped cilantro, a splash of fresh lime, cubed or smashed avocado, sour cream, diced tomato, chopped bell peppers, black olives, shredded cheeses, lettuce, scallions, and whatever else you can dream up!
This quick and easy Mexican dish makes a great weeknight dinner idea. You don’t have to dirty many dishes, it doesn’t take too many ingredients that you don’t already have, and it’s fresh and filling.
