Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow. Even if you don’t like football, the party food alone is reason enough to celebrate. This Chicken Fajita Rice Fiesta recipe is just the ticket for game day (or any day when you crave something spicy.) And it won’t block your goal if you are committed to eating real food this year. You don’t need to measure anything. The operative amount you need for throwing this deliciousness together quickly is “some.”
Put some rice in a rice cooker and switch it on to cook while you create the rest of the fiesta feast.
Coarsely chop some vegetables. Choose from green bell peppers (and/or orange, red, yellow), onions, garlic, mushrooms (white button, baby portabellas, or any other kind you like.)
Slice some cooked chicken into bite sized pieces.
Rummage through your spice collection and pick a few: turmeric, cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic salt, cumin, cilantro, freshly ground black pepper, sea salt.
Peel and slice an avocado or two (or three, whatever.)
Grab a bag of tortilla chips that contains only three ingredients: corn, oil, salt.
Buy a jar of organic salsa, or at least a brand that isn’t full of chemicals and preservatives.
Arrange possible toppings: black olives, grated cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, poblanos.
Cook the vegetables and chicken. It will only take about ten minutes. Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil into a large skillet or wok. Crank up the heat to high. When the oil starts to sizzle, toss in the vegetables. Cook and stir for five minutes. Add the cooked sliced chicken. Sprinkle spices over the top to taste. Stir everything until well mixed. Cook and stir for three more minutes. It’s done!
To assemble your fiesta plate:
Put a scoop of cooked rice in the middle of the plate.
Add a spoonful of the cooked vegetables and chicken mixture.
Pour on some salsa.
Pile on your favorite toppings.
Arrange some tortilla chips and avocado on the side.
Dig into the spicy goodness. Olé!
