Arkansas is the top rice-producing state in the country, so this recipe definitely represents our region. I'm a member of the Craighead County Farm Bureau Women's Committee, and one of our main promotions is rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, undrained
  • 1 can (11-1/2 ounces) V8 juice
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.
