Mexican Chicken, Beans and Rice Skillet
Gluten Free Living – 2017
I have one humdinger of a recipe for you today! Mexican Chicken, Beans and Rice Skillet is one of the most succulent, mouthwatering meals you’ll ever make. This fantastic entree is amped by using diced tomatoes and green chilies, pepper Jack cheese and southwestern corn. Then it’s garnished with salsa, sour cream, cilantro, avocados, olives and two kinds of grape tomatoes. It is S-O-O-O wonderful that you will want this recipe on your monthly menu rotation. 🙂
I have really grown to love Tex-Mex foods during the 20 years we’ve lived in Texas. I’ve had to acquire the taste for jalapeno peppers, chilies, cumin and other hot ingredients that go into making these dishes so great. I made a delicious beef version that’s similar to this recipe a couple of weeks ago. It was so good that I decided to try my hand at a spiced up chicken version. I added onion and bell pepper, jazzed up corn, cheese and diced tomatoes with chilies instead of plain. Yes, yes, yes!
You can garnish this one-dish skillet meal with all the toppings I added, or try a batch of homemade Guacamole, your own version of Salsa or Pico de Gallo. Regardless of what toppings you use, you just have to make this delicious entree! Because I use a Homemade Taco Seasoning when I make any Tex-Mex dish, this recipe is also cleaner than most recipes. This is one of those guilt-free indulgence meals because it uses the right kind of fats like olive oil and avocados, and lots of healthy veggies. If you substitute organic cheese and sour cream it will be even healthier.
If you’re looking for a terrific one dish skillet supper to surprise your family or company with, then I recommend this Mexican Chicken, Beans and Rice Skillet as a five-star recipe! Prepare yourself to be wowed.

Add corn, rice, pinto beans, diced tomatoes with green chilies and Homemade Taco Seasoning. (A regular taco seasoning packet can be substituted).
Add chicken broth.
Stir ingredients to combine. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat about 20 minutes until rice is tender.
Once liquid has absorbed, sprinkle both cheeses over top.
Cover with lid and cook an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
