  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir rice 1 minute. Add coconut milk and stir to combine. Increase heat and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 35 minutes. Cover; remove from heat. Let sit 10 minutes.
  3. Fluff rice with a fork. Stir in the lime zest, lime juice, and salt to taste. Cover and keep warm.
  4. Cut tortillas into 1/4-inch strips. Place strips on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 30 minutes.
  5. To char peppers, hold jalapeno pepper with tongs and hold over the flame of a gas stove or directly on the burner of an electric stove, turning about every 30 seconds. Continue until all sides are charred, about 5 minutes. Immediately place pepper in a small ziptop plastic bag and seal shut. Repeat with second pepper. Allow peppers to return to room temperature, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the skin. Cut off stem, remove seeds (if desired), and dice.
  6. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Cook and stir corn until it begins to brown, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer corn to a bowl.
  7. Heat oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, chili powder, and cumin. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in beans and corn and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  8. Place rice in the bottom of a bowl; top with chicken mixture, chopped tomatoes, and a dollop of sour cream. Serve with tortilla strips.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Follow your specific rice's cooking directions, and replace water with equal parts coconut milk.
  • You can control how spicy the dish is by the amount of seeds you leave in the jalapenos. When handling the seeds from a spicy pepper either wear gloves or make sure you thoroughly wash your hands before contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth.

I made this recipe as part of the Uncle Ben's Rice campaign. First off, cooking with Uncle Ben's products is a sure home run, this recipe, however, barely makes it to first base, IMHO. Three sta...

Pretty good recipe and easy to make which is always good in my book. There was something missing from the chicken mixture, though. Next time I will omit the chili powder and cumin and use a pack...

Changed it a bit to work in a crockpot. Pretty good!

I actually haven't tried this yet, so I give my stars based on the ingredients. I think this sounds quite promising! I love coconut rice and have had it many times on trips to Jamaica. I was...
