Chicken Rice Nachos

     Is it really on Wednesday? This has been the longest week. ever.
As I write, I'm thinking I just posted something using Rice-a-Roni. I guess the sale we found a few weeks ago, put us on a bit of a kick. Anyhow, these nachos were really good. They were even better the second day! Just the right amount of saltiness and crunchiness and salsa. I highly recommend making this as nachos as we did, but you could also make a taco salad by placing it on a bed of lettuce with just a few chips sprinkle on top for crunchiness.

1 pkg Rice-a-Roni, chicken flavor
2 Tbl butter
16oz salsa
1-lb chicken, chopped
1 cup corn
1/2 c shredded cheddar
2 cups tortilla chips
optional: chopped tomato, shredded lettuce
  • Saute rice over medium-high heat with butter until golden.
  • Stir in 2 cups water, salsa, chicken, and special seasoning from Rice-a-Roni box. Bring to boil. Reduce to low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in corn. Cover and simmer 5-10 more minutes until rice is tender and chicken is cooked. 
  • Arrange chips on each plate. Top with chicken/rice mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
