Dinner tonight is Mexican Rice Bowls!!! We actually had them yesterday too . . . I made enough to have leftovers, and believe me you WANT leftovers of this!!!
I call it Mexican Rice Bowls. Kinda like Mexican Haystacks (or Spoon Tacos), but without the chips. Just layer it all in a bowl. It’s an easy dinner for a hot day. Great for leftovers too.
The key ingredient for this is Tomatillo Salsa. The GREEN salsa. You can make your own, or find some at the store. I used this from Costco . . . and yes, I could probably drink this stuff.
Mexican Rice Bowls
6 cups of cooked rice (I use white or brown rice)
4 tomatoes, diced
4 cups grated cheese
whatever else you want for toppings
In the slow cooker put:
2 lbs of chicken breast
1 cup of Tomatillo Salsa
2 cans of black beans, drained
garlic cloves (or powder)
salt and pepper to taste
When the chicken is done, shred it with 2 forks and let it simmer at least 30 mins more in the pot.
