Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the dressing by blending all the ingredients together in a blender. The longer this can sit and chill the better the flavor will enhance.
  2. Chicken: Put in crock pot for 4 hours then shred and replace for 1 hour to soak up the juice.
  3. Rice: Blend in the blender the following: bouillon, garlic, cilantro, green chilies, salt, butter and onion.
  4. Let water come to a boil; add rice and blended ingredients. Let rest until rice is done.
  5. What we did was put a tortilla in a frying pan and added cheese on it until it became slightly crisp then layered chicken, rice, romaine lettuce, fresh lime and the dressing.
  6. This was a easy and very good recipe and the leftovers were great!
