Mexican Rice with Chicken
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min.
In response to SHOK, I don't think water is counted as an ingredient.
This tastes good and is easy to make. I have also made it with drained ground beef instead of chicken, and that tastes excellent too. This is a really good recipe for an easy, tasty, week night meal.
Another recipe advertised as "5-ingredients" in a line-up with chicken recipes like that, and there are 6! Can no one count anymore when they list these things?! I'm sure it's good which is why the 5-star rating, but I am confused with the advertising of 5!
I didn't have any chicken in the house when I made this, but I did have a can of sliced mushrooms and some black olives. I added those instead of chicken and was very happy with the results. A nice filling skillet dinner.By the way, the rice and pasta mix is a Rice-a-roni product.
Sounds good. But I can't find one that has Mexican rice and pasta in it like abusymom says. What is it called?
This recipe was surprisingly good for how easy it was to make; however, I think it was lacking something. I think some green peppers would be a nice addition. This would also be good inside a flour tortilla.
I have always used the rice-a-roni boxes for a quick dinner. All the comments on the salt and make your own mixes have missed the point. The point is quick and good. After all the years we sed them we are till healthy, not overweight, and the blood pressure is fine.
I don't consider a dish made from a commercial mix a recipe. Never as healthy as made from scratch, and Mexican rice from scratch is simple to make. but I do like another reviewers hint to use the leftovers in a taco shell with taco trimmings.
mindysmama: Rice-a-Roni makes both a Mexican style and Spanish style rice/pasta mix. Here is a link to the company information: http://www.ricearoni.com/Products/Rice-A-Roni/Classic_Favorites/Mexican_Style Hope this helps! I've used it for years and it's really good, as is this recipe!
No thanks, just a prepackaged side dish loaded with salt an preservatives. Make something from scratch so you can decide what goes in or not.
