Are you ready for this???

Here is another great flavorful recipe for you. (Side note: spices, herbs, seasonings are what it is about..When making healthy meals you can cut fat and extra calories without lacking flavor..if using those items.)

Margarita Grilled Chicken, Fiesta Rice & Black Beans

Tequila Lime marinade
1 can of Black Beans
Brown Rice - We tried the minute brown rice "ready to serve" - already in individual servings
1/2 can of Rotel Tomatoes

First I marinaded the chicken all day. We enjoy grilling the chicken. Gives it a great flavor! OK. So you have your chickens grilled now you must get the rest of the meal prepared.

Black Beans
Warm them up! Ready to serve.

So considering I went the easy way - all you have to do with these individual rice cups is put them in the microwave. After the rice was heated I mixed the majority of the Rotel tomatoes into the rice. (Save a little bit of the Rotel for the chicken) Finely chop cilantro and mix into rice. The Rotel and Cilantro gives great flavor and zest to your boring rice.

Lastly - plate your food and top the chicken with Rotel tomatoes and Cilantro.

Eat it up!

haha.. - please disregard my chipped plate! nice Lindsey, real nice!
