The first time I made this Chicken Taco Rice Salad we were having friends over for dinner – ahh! Who makes a dish they’ve never prepared for guests? [Me] On top of that, there are peppers and my one friends doesn’t even like peppers. Well, I went for it anyway and everyone loved it. Steve even said we should incorporate it into our regular meals and have it as often as twice a month! Wahoo – another great recipe!

      Great question, I just cooked white rice separate from the chicken & then added it – you can use whichever rice your family likes whether that be instant or not, either will work!
