Sizzling Salsa Chicken and Rice Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Summer is here and salsa can be a GREAT inspiration for creating summertime recipes. I know that many of you are already fans of Wholly Guacamole, but did you know that they also make Wholly Salsa? YES! Many different flavors of delicious salsa.
I recently received a cooler full of Wholly Salsas, along with some of their single serve Wholly Guacamole products and I set to work to create a new recipe.  I had no idea that Wholly made so many varieties of salsa!  They have some deliciously interesting ones too like Red Pepper Mango, Roasted Tomato, Pineapple and Avocado Verde.  I used them as inspiration and this is the recipe I came up with, and it is GOOD! (Ask my husband, he devoured it.)  I used the Roasted Tomato salsa, but you can use your favorite.
Sizzling Salsa Chicken and Rice
3 cups cooked rice
2 ears of fresh corn, kernels cut from cob
½ tsp ground cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ green pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
1 container of your favorite Wholly Salsa
½ cup Mexican Queso Fresco (crumbling cheese)
Prepare rice according to package directions to make 3 cups.
Meanwhile, spray a large 12” frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Scatter corn kernels across bottom of pan and sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until browned.
Remove corn from pan and set aside. Add olive oil to pan and heat. Add pepper and onion and cook until starting to brown. 
Remove from heat and stir in chicken, salsa and rice. Sprinkle corn and cheese on top before serving.
