NMS Covenant: Sweet/Spicy Chicken and Rice

This might look like some of my previous creations, but it's very different, really!

Most of the ingredients were leftover from chicken quesadillas (and boy, were those tasty), so if you're going to be having burritos or quesadillas in the near future, consider this as a way to use up whatever's left.

Here's my ingredient list, but of course you could put anything you wanted in here:

  • Basmati brown rice
  • Black beans
  • Mexican-seasoned chicken
  • Green onions
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Sweet/spicy toppin’

I piled the rice, beans, chicken, and cheese onto a plate, nuked it, then sprinkled with green onions, Mexican seasoning and a plop of sour cream. The “sweet/spicy toppin’” is simply a mixture of Mama’s homemade salsa and a spoonful of strawberry jam. The jam adds a subtle sweetness to the dish that tones down the salsa zing.

It only took a few minutes to throw together and I found it delicious! It’s bulky, it’s satisfying, and it’s not a sandwich. Mission accomplished!
