Ingredients

    about 1 lb (450g) cooked chicken (I use leftover from a rotisserie chicken or 6 chicken thighs, about 4 cups)
    3 cups Cooked Brown Rice
    ĺ cups Frozen Corn
    15 ounces, fluid Can Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
    1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
    2 ounces, Canned Green Chilis
    1 cup Salsa
    3/4 cup Mexican Cheese blend, or whatever you have on hand
    salt and pepper to taste (I use 1/2 t salt, no salt or pepper in nutrition analysis))
    2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro For Garnish

    Preparation Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for cilantro and mix thoroughly to combine. Make sure the yogurt and cheese are stirred in throughout the entire bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to an oven-safe dish and top with extra cheese if you would like. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

    To make this process easier, I always have cooked chicken on hand, and use Uncle Benís Ready Rice. If you have those two things, this can be throw together in a matter of minutes! It can also easily be made ahead of time and reheated.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for cilantro and mix thoroughly to combine. Make sure the yogurt and cheese are stirred in throughout the entire bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer to an oven-safe dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
