Gather Ingredients

You will need chicken, rice, heavy cream, queso dip, salsa, green chilies, Rotel, cilantro, taco seasoning, and shredded Mexican cheese blend.


Cook the Chicken

Drizzle olive oil in an oven-safe skillet and heat to medium heat. Add the chicken and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes until no longer pink.


Salsa & Queso

Add the cream, rice, queso blanco, and salsa to the cooked chicken. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes until the rice is fully cooked.


Add Rotel

Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro, green chilies, and Rotel tomatoes.


Melt the Cheese

Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the mixture and place under the broil in a preheated oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Garnish with more cilantro if desired.
