  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 cup extra long-grain rice uncooked
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • 2 2/3 cups chicken broth
  • 1.5 pounds cooked chicken cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 15- ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 10- ounce can RO*TEL tomatoes I used their Lime & Cilantro variety
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon chili powder depending on how spicy you like it
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese


  • shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Roma tomatoes diced
  • avocado diced
  • sour cream
  • green onions sliced
  • lime wedges


  • In a large, deep pan over medium heat add the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften; about 3-5 minutes. Add the rice to the pan and saute the rice until it starts to brown; about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant; about 30 seconds.
  • Add the chicken broth, cooked chicken, black bean, RO*TEL, chili powder, and ground cumin to the pan. Stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a low boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 20-25 minutes until the rice is tender.
  • Turn off the heat, uncover, and fluff the mixture briefly with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cheese and stir to combine. Add your garnishes, and serve!
