    Mirj's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by a friend whose parents live in New Mexico. She had this when she went to visit them, then served it to me when I came over for dinner. I fell in love with the heat and the taste.

      Fabulous, flavorful and healthy recipe. The only change I made was to use 3 chicken breasts, keeping all other ingredient amounts the same. There is so much flavor packed into this recipe due to the jalapeno, cilantro, chili powder. All of the ingredients complement one another beautifully. This has become an instant favorite for us!

      This was pretty fast for me to assemble, since I had some defrosted Salsa Seasoning Chicken on hand. (Salsa Seasoning Chicken from WI Cheesehead)& leftover brown rice flavored with chicken broth. I sauteed onions/scallions, jalapenos, then added the beans, corn,chicken, cilantro, vinegar, chili powder(1 teas) and salt to taste. I let that heat thru and then just blended it into the rice. This was very tasty and a economical way for me to blend 1 recipe with this flavorful rice recipe. Thank you so much for posting this recipe Mirj.

      awesome, had to make a few change due to my husband being alergic to onions and both of us being on a low sodium diet but it still turned out great This is a five. It's been saved in my private cookbook with the recipes I really loved. I'm sending a picture as well. Leanne
