  2. Combine the cooked onion and serrano, the rice, chicken, canned corn, canned tomato sauce, chili powder and cayenne pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Transfer to a greased 2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, for 40 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  4. Serve rice mixture over lettuce with bell pepper, avocado, jicama and lime wedges.


  • * For more flavor, try cooking your rice in chicken broth instead of water.
  • ** To add more heat to this dish, use 1 to 2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile pepper or ground ancho chile pepper in place of the chili powder.
