A recipe from www.ro-tel.com. Legend has it this recipe was developed by chuck wagon chefs.
"This was a great recipe. I started with your idea. We like things pretty spicy around here, so I added a few drops of Tabasco® Sauce, 2 T. of Chili Powder, 2 T Cumin, and a few shakes of Lawry's® Seasoning Salt, pepper, and Garlic Powder. I also added a lot more diced tomatoes, and a package of frozen corn. Next time I am going to add black olives and muchrooms at the kids' request. It was so good that it made the skiing list. That means that this is a meal the kids want to take along to eat at the ski hill each week. Huge honor, I'll have you know!"- fudge4u
Top-ranked recipe named "Southwest Chicken Skillet"
Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until no longer pink. Stir in rice, tomatoes, water, and all but 2 tablespoons of the onion. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir chicken and rice. Top with cheese and reserved 2 tablespoons of green onion. Cover and cook 5 minutes more or until cheese melts. Garnish with sour cream, if desired.
For variety, try blending 1 cup of frozen peas in step 3 just before topping with cheese. Heat through and serve.
jaynéelinkousfarmer 1 year agoSpicy but good. Needed salt. The sour makes for a delicious addition.
Shawna23 1 year agoI didn't like this at all. I used mild rotel and it was still too spicy. I added sour cream to try and make it less spicy but that didn't work. It just made it soupy. My husband loved it though.
megananderson1 1 year agoSo good! I will definitely be making this again and again! It was really easy and fast. I followed the recipe exactly with brown rice and the rice turned out a little crunchy, so I'll just have to watch that better next time.
flutter55 1 year agoThis was good, but the rice was a bit crunchy, so we will adjust the cooking time when we make it again. Maybe add some more spices to it.
kimlangdon-turpin 1 year agoso easy and tasted great!
BigStud 2 years agoGreat recipe. I've cooked it twice this week cause I just had to have more. It's great with and without the sour cream. I used fresh tomatoes instead of Ro-Tel.
vanessas1 3 years agoNormally I like Rotel but the taste was too strong in this recipe. It was still pretty good, not something I would make often though.
paigehuff 3 years agoMy girls thought the recipe was good and I added a mixed vegetables to make it a complete meal. I also used minute rice so it was done in a jiffy. Tasted great. Thank you!
kristahulsey 3 years agoThis was a very yummy dish. To speed things up I used minute rice instead of long grain and cut out the water. Another quicker version is to buy a roasted chicken from the deli and pull it apart and add that chicken along with the other ingredients and saute together.
