This is a modified version of a recipe on allrecipes.com that I enjoy greatly and that gives you a lot of protein, a lot of taste, and very few calories. You could make it much faster and easier with pre-prepared chicken breast, first sauteed with the onions and garlic in olive oil. You would increase the amount of broth by 1/2 cup or so and wouldn't use water in that scenario.Submitted by TISHARAY
I modified this from the Ellen Show (10-05-10). Made it for the Superbowl and put it out with the "other" queso. It ran out first. It's a great faux cheese for nachos. The uses are endless. You can add anything to it... Don't forget to add your chips to your tracker. ;-)Submitted by AMBER353
quick and easy, even from frozen, this taco meat can be used for tacos, taco salads, chicken burritos, and much more.
This is a go-to meal starter for me, when I've forgotten to plan for dinner, I will serve this as one of those meals above. I use the chicken breast tenderloins, put them in the pan frozen, cover and turn the eye on really low to let them quick-thaw.
Use the amount of seasoning and water your taco seasoning calls for for one pound of meat, if you like your meat spicier add more seasoning (adjust the water accordingly) or add a second can of rotel or a can of diced green chilis.
I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an “add a little of this and that” person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements!
