I ran across this wonderful recipe, when I was looking for a last minute idea for supper. I did have to modify the recipe some to match the items I had on hand, but the family loved it regardless. I didn't have the yellow rice, so I rinsed some white basmanti rice in water for about a minute and half and then sauteed in oil in a medium-hot skillet until golden brown. I added a can of rotel and some chicken broth to the rice and simmered until tender about 20 minutes. Meanwhile in a second pan, I cooked the onion, garlic and about a 1/2 tsp of cumin. I added 2 cans of canned chicken breast that I had previously lightly rinsed and coated with taco seasoning. Then added frozen corn, the black beans and another separate can of rotel. I warmed all the ingredients together and added the rice mixture when it was done. I didn't have cilantro, but next time I will be sure to have some because I am sure it would improve the flavor. Anyways, the kids ate it with tortillas, and told me to be sure and write this down so I could make it again. Husband loved it too and said it was about the right amount of heat for him. Thanks for this tasty and versatile recipe! Will definitely make again...
