Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice
Poultry and freezer basics inspired this deliciously healthy combo. I have a hard time getting my family to eat healthy, but they have no problem cleaning their plates when I serve this dish! —Tracy Long, Bellwood, Nebraska

I was very excited to try this recipe as it looked delicious. I made it and was VERY disappointed. Not only did it not look anything like the picture, it was bland and not very appealing to the eye. Won’t be trying this one again.
