    wisewoman83's Note:

    I was given this recipe by a Texan friend. It's simple, quick, and family pleasing! My father-in-law is always dropping broad hints about how much he likes it and how I should make it more often! It makes a lot and you can also freeze it (just don't add the rice). You can make it mellow as listed below or add some heat by using a can of Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes (actually, that's what the original recipe calls for) and/or adding some jalapeno. I recommend serving with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Dice onions and cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. In a large skillet, cook in the oil until the chicken is white and fully cooked.
    2. 2
      Chop the bell peppers and tomatoes into bite-sized pieces and place in a large pot. Mix in the chicken, Cheese Whiz, cream of chicken soup, and salt.
    3. 3
      Cook on medium-low, stirring frequently, until mixture is heated through. It's ready to eat as soon as it's hot enough, but you may want to simmer it longer if you prefer less-crunchy pepper pieces.
    4. 4
      Cook the rice. I find that 2 cups of water and 2 cups of rice need about 2-1/2 minutes in my microwave, then 2 or 3 more minutes to sit and steam.
    5. 5
      Serve chicken/cheese mixture over rice. You can break up tortilla chips on top or use them to scoop it up.
