    SuperSpike's Note:

    This is a recipe I came up with to use up a whole bunch of salsa that I made (see Leah's food processor salsa). My favorite mexican dish is Arroz con pollo, and have a hard time finding any restaurants that make it to my liking. This is a simple and delicious dish. Please note that this recipe uses rice that is already cooked.

    1. 1
      in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat then add mushrooms, onion, and garlic. let cook for 2 minutes or so.
    2. 2
      season chicken with salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne- add to skillet, cook until chicken is brown on all sides.
    3. 3
      add salsa and rice stir frequently while the chicken continues to cook.
    4. 4
      Add chicken broth a little bit at a time, like you're making risotto(you probably won't need the whole amount of chicken broth because the rice is already cooked- the amount you need depends on what kind of salsa and rice you use).
    5. 5
      When chicken is cooked through and the surrounding rice is creamy, turn off heat and stir in cheese.
    6. 6
      Top with some chopped cilantro or parsley for a pop of color.

      Loved it!! Made subtle substitutions (pepper jack for regular, chili powder, which is cumin and cayenne, plus a few others) and added an 8oz can of tomato sauce because my salsa was on the watery/fresh side. SUPER EASY, super tasty....can't wait to make it again. THANKS!

      Very easy & quite good! I had leftover chicken & rice so it was really quick. Only change I will make next time is to add more of the vegetables. Wish I had this recipe when all my kids were little because of the ease & fabulous taste.
