1 cup salsa
1 pkg taco seasoning
2 cups minute rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1 cup shredded cheese
Bring chicken, salsa, taco mix, and water to boil. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Return to boil. Stir in rice and beans. Cover and cook on low 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with tortilla chips. Makes 8 servings.
Notes: This recipe makes more food than it might seem. It fed 8 people easily, if I remember right. You can also use regular rice in place of minute rice: just cook the rice separately and add it at the end, and reduce the amount of water used to simmer the chicken (maybe to a half cup or so). This is another recipe I got from my sister, Jill.
