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 flair 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.

This cheesy rice was a huge hit at our house. It is our go-to side dish for Mexican recipes. Heck, you could even throw in some leftover ground beef or chicken and turn this into a main dish if you like.

This easy rice is great with taco, chicken, Mexican casseroles. Here are a few more of our favorite Tex-Mex recipes that go great with this easy rice:

  1. 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!

  2. Very easy & very good. Next time I will try it with regular cheddar cheese soup & maybe add some chopped up chicken. Thanks.
