DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  • Start boiling the rice in 2 cups of water, covered. This should take 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet. Add the diced chicken and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the 1/2 cup water and fajita seasoning.
  • Add the diced onion, green bell pepper, corn and garlic.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the chicken and vegetables are cooked and the liquid has mostly reduced.
  • Add the salsa to the chicken mixture in the pan and stir.
  • When the rice is cooked and has absorbed all the liquid, add the rice to the chicken salsa mixture and stir. Pour into a 10x6 or equivalent baking tray.
  • Top with 1 cup of the cheese.
  • Crush the nachos into crumbs and scatter evenly over the cheese.
  • Top with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until bubbling.
