This week I made a crazy little fun dessert, Graveyard Dessert or dirt cup/cake as it is more commonly known. It taste great I promise!
Last night we had the dessert but more importantly a lovely salad and our main course was...TexMex Chicken and Rice casserole. This is a very simple meal to throw together and oh so good!
TexMex Chicken and Rice Casserole
1 tsp onion powder OR 1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pkg chicken flavored rice and vermicelli mix (Rice A Roni)
1 can chicken broth
2 cups water
2 TBSP butter
2-3 cups cooked diced chicken
1 can Rotel drained
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp cumin
1/2 - 1 cup shredded cheese
In a pan melt the butter, add the onion powder and pour in the rice mix. Brown and add the flavor package, broth and water. Allow this to cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chiles), chili powder, basil, cumin and chicken. Stir well and lastly add the cheese.
Pour the mixture into a 13 x 9 baking pan.
