Fiesta Rice Recipe - simple Mexican rice dish with only 4 ingredients! Mix together and bake for 30 minutes. SO delicious!!

I served this Fiesta Rice with the Taco Chicken from yesterday.  I had a can of Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup in the pantry, so I decided to use it to make this rice.

We love this rice recipe.  The rice comes out tender and creamy - similar to a risotto.   The Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup gave the rice just the right amount of Tex-Mex flare to compliment the chicken.  This is a fix it and forget it a recipe.  Just mix up the soup, liquid, and rice and pop it in the oven.  The rice cooked while Chicken Legs grilled the chicken and dinner was on the table in no time.  I love these kinds of meals.

  2. This sounds wonderful! I'm going to make it with your bubble up enchiladas. Think I could make the rice in the crock pot? Thanks!

  4. So I looked at 3 stores and couldn't find the Fiesta Nacho Cheese Campbell's soup (weird, right?) so I used Progresso 3 Cheese cooking sauce and it turned out good!
