30-Minute One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice
30-Minute One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice is a must have recipe – the rich, full bodied flavours and cheesy rice with chicken is a deeply satisfying dish. I used basmati rice for this recipe because it has the best texture, but any long grain rice will work well in this one pot meal.
♥ What makes this cheesy chicken taco rice so delicious?
Everything in this chicken dinner dish has so much flavour. The rice is infused with onions, garlic, chilli pepper, oregano and cumin. The veggies such as bell peppers and tomatoes keep the rice moist and add more flavour. However, the key ingredient is the cheese, it makes everything rich and creamy. The fresh cilantro which is added at the end, adds freshness and an exceptional zing to this one pot chicken taco rice.
This colourful and flavourful dish is wonderful served alongside a light salad. Or, you can enjoy it as an entrée with added toppings such as chopped tomatoes, green onions, thinly sliced lettuce, sour cream, fresh cilantro and extra cheese. This is a delicious weeknight comforting meal made in 30 minutes not to be missed. Cheesy chicken taco rice is a gluten-free meal that your entire family will love!
