When I set out to create this dish, I wanted to make it super simple and still keep all of the delicious flavors. I also like dishes that don’t require me to work the entire time in the kitchen. You can prepare and have this dish finished in just an hour. Perfect for an after school meal, and easy for when you get home from work.

  1. Yummy! I’m wondering if you can eat it like a dip with chips? That sounds so delicious!

  2. This looks incredible, I think I could eat it every night of the week!

  3. YUM! This looks so good and easy too!

  4. Rotel what?

  5. Do you think I could use canned chicken or an already cooked rotisserie chicken to make the meal even faster if I needed to? Thanks.

  6. Loved this dish! Next time I will use less rice and add a cup of sour cream. Thank you for this quick and easy recipe
