Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisines. Unfortunately, we don’t get it very often here in Calgary. I keep meaning to cook more Mexican style dishes but I never think to. Earlier this week was Cinco de Mayo so it reminded me that I really wanted something with Mexican flavors that wasn’t tacos.
I decided to make an easy rice bowl with chicken and beans. I love the flavors and it would make for delicious leftovers for lunch. Dewey and I both loved it and I was right…the lunch leftovers were awesome. Evan turned up his nose (of course) so he ate rice, chicken and cheese separately. I still call that a win, though, because we all ate the sam general meal. No separate preparations needed.
