Submitted by: MYCRAZYMOONS

Introduction

I am involved in a "detox" diet plan that helps to identify food sensitivities and allergies. I don't want to suffer with bland food for a month, so I am adapting all of my favorite recipes.

Directions

Add water and rice to your rice cooker and start. This is the longest portion of the meal ... waiting for the rice to cook. If you are cooking rice on the stove, you are on your own, because I always end up with mush or burnt rice ... Sorry!

Add chicken and salsa to a non-stick skillet, I prefer cast iron. I also use Emerald Valley Salsa. It is made in Eugene, OR and has no extra preservatives, sugar, or other unhealthy stuff. Make your own or try to find a good fresh salsa in your area. Becareful with the spice level of the salsa, it will become spicier as it cooks.

Cook the chicken until done.

Serve chicken over rice and top with cilantro, tomatoes, onions, and guacamole.

Enjoy
