Tex-Mex Chicken & Rice

      Our family really loves Mexican and Tex-Mex recipes.  They pack so much flavor and are generally easy to prepare.  This Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice is no different.  It makes a perfect Weeknight meal.

Tex-Mex Chicken & Rice

4 c. chicken broth
2 c. shredded cheese
2 c. uncooked rice
3 lg. cooked chicken breasts, shredded
2 cans corn, drained
 1 can enchilada sauce (10 oz.)
 1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained (10 oz.)
1 T. dehydrated chopped onions, or 1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder




     Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Pour your rice into a medium sized pot and add in the chicken broth.  Heat it up over medium-high heat until it boils, stirring occasionally.  Once it boils, turn to low and cover the pot and cook for 10 minutes.  During that 10 minutes, do not stir or remove the lid.  After 10 minutes, remove the lid and stir and replace the lid and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

      After the rice is cooked, in a large bowl stir in the rest of the ingredients (except for the cheese).

  1. Too many carbs for us at the moment but looks good.

    1. I totally understand. We are diabetics and have to watch our carb intake too.
