Ortega Fiesta Chicken Bowls and Giveaway

Last week while I was at the market I noticed the packages of Ortega's Skillet Sauces.  I knew that was something I needed to try.   I had an idea of what I wanted to make with the Ortega Cilantro and Green Chili Skillet Sauce.  Here is a fun dish that the whole family will love and it's ready in under 45 minutes and they make good burritos too.  Follow my blog to see what I do with the Ortega Taco Skillet Sauce and the Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce.

Ortega Fiesta Chicken Bowls

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup uncooked rice
1 package Ortega Cilantro and Green Chili Skillet Sauce
chicken stock
1 cup corn, fresh or frozen
3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
2 16oz can refried beans (if making 12 or one can for 6)
Ortega Fiesta Flats - Flat bottom Taco Shells

Optional Garnish

black olives, sliced
shredded lettuce
sour cream

In a saucepan over medium heat sauté onion in olive oil for 5 minutes.  Add rice and cook for 5 minutes.  Place the Ortega Skillet Sauce in a 2 cup measuring cup add chicken stock to make a total of 2 cups of liquid, add to rice.  Bring to a boil, add corn and chicken, stir, cover and lower flame to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir and place a clean towel over the saucepan and replace lid, let sit for 5 minutes.

Heat up refried beans and divide into each of the Ortega Fiesta Flats, top with chicken rice mixture and your favorite garnish.

Now for the giveaway...I love Ortega products so much I just had to share them with one lucky person.  You will get one package of each of the New Ortega Skillet Sauces, a package of the Ortega Fiesta Flats and a $50.00 Visa Gift Card.
