Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 cups water
  • 1 (7 ounce) package ZATARAIN'S® Black Beans and Rice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 tostadas
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken


  1. Mix water, Rice Mix and butter in medium saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minute or until most of the water is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent rice and beans from sticking.
  2. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.
  3. For each tostada shell, top with 1/3 cup rice mixture, 1/4 cup chicken and assorted toppings, if desired.
