Our family LOVES chicken and rice tacos! I have a few substitutes however. Instead of tomato sauce I used mild salsa. Instead of chicken breast, i use ground chicken. Works a lot better! And I dont put peppers in. But that's just family taste! Overall very delicious recipe! :)

I keep precooked shredded chicken in the freezer so I used that. I doubled the recipe but didn't use the pepper. I also used canned white corn instead of frozen. I used 2 cups of mexican blend cheese and 2 cups of brown rice. We thought it needed more seasoning so I added another packet of taco seasoning. My family also put hot sauce on their serving. We enjoyed this for something different. It was a quick, easy meal.
