  • 1 rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 1 15 oz can black beans drained
  • 1 15 oz can corn drained
  • 1 8 oz packet Key Lime Cilantro Taco Skillet Sauce or use your favorite brand/flavor
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white (or brown) rice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp taco sauce I use Taco Bell brand
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 4 lime wedges
  • 6 oz medium cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 oz can sliced jalapeƱos drained


  1. In a large sauce pan add the shredded chicken, black beans, corn and Taco skillet sauce. Mix well, cover and heat over medium low heat until simmering.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a separate sauce pan over medium high heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, for a couple of minutes until rice is starting to toast. Add the water, salt and taco sauce and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer the rice for 15 - 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed.

  3. For the bowls, add a generous scoop of rice and top with the chicken, beans and corn mixture. Top with your choice of shredded lettuce, diced avocado, lime wedge, shredded cheese, sour cream and sliced jalapeƱos. Serve immediately.
