I used this recipe as a jumping off point. I cubed 1.5lbs of boneless/skinless chicken breasts and cooked them in olive oil with a packet of Taco Bell taco seasoning. Added some chicken broth (not sure how much), 2 packets of Taco Bell salsa from a taco kit (all I had), 1 can of well rinsed black beans, 1 can of rinsed corn niblets, and about 1.5C uncooked brown rice. I then just let everything simmer for over an hour. After it was all cooked, I decided it needed more tomatoes, so I added 1 can of diced tomatoes. In the future, if I'm short on salsa I'll be sure to add the tomatoes earlier so they absorb the taco flavor better. I completely forgot to add cheese, but it was still *delicious*! I'm sure a little cheese, as well as some sour cream would enhance this further. Anyway, needless to say, this is a definite keeper. As a base that you can modify, I think it's great. As a complete recipe, I imagine it'd be awfully bland. Regardless, thanks for a great idea! :)
