  • Prepare Knorr(R) Fiesta Sides(TM) - Mexican Rice according to package directions. Remove from the heat.

  • Stir rice and shredded cheese into the chicken mixture. Divide the mixture among flour tortillas; wrap and place seam-side down on a lined baking sheet. Brush with oil.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and crispy, about 20 minutes. Serve, if desired, with your favorite toppings.

Tips

I've partnered with Knorr® to let you know what I think about Fiesta Sides™. As always, all opinions are my own.

Recipe Notes:

Rotisserie chicken works great in this recipe.

Use your favorite salsa, or fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies.

Cheddar or pepper jack cheese can be substituted for the colby-jack.

Because of the high oven temperature, olive oil is not recommended for brushing the tortillas.

My hubby is the cook in the family but is working long hours lately. So I've been given "dinner duty" having not cooked anything more than boxed Mac 'n Cheese Instant Oatmeal and boiling water. This recipe was easy to follow looked and smelled great and made 8 delicious Chimmies! My hubby is from New Orleans and likes food with "character" and he was VERY satisfied as well as my 11 year old daughter! EXCELLENT! Read More

This was an excellent dish and made easier when I prepared the ingredients ahead of time for a large gathering. I shredded the meat from a rotisserie chicken and made Mexican rice and beans from scratch earlier in the day then assembled and baked the chimichangas later. So yummy! You can adjust the seasoning from mild to spicy. A big hit with everyone served with extra salsa sour cream cheese cilantro and a salad. Read More

I made this last night it was good. I used regular white rice instead of the spanish rice since I dont like peppers. My family liked it my dad liked alot without the tortilla. We did burritos instead and we thought it was still pretty good. Read More

A real hit with the entire family...and fairly easy to boot. Only change I made was to add a can of black bean to the chicken and rice mix. Will definitely make it again. Read More
