Chicken Enchilada Rice Bowl--Gluten Free

This yummy dish happened as a result of leftovers. Sometimes the best meals happen as I clean out the fridge! I had some Cilantro Lime Rice (I made a 5 cup batch--that's 5 cups of dry rice for a party at our church. My rice wasn't used so I had a fridge full. That is after giving some away) in the fridge, a few sliced olives and some cooked chicken seasoned with Penzys Fajita Seasoning. I drizzled some homemade enchilada sauce over all. A little cilantro, shredded cheese, diced tomato, sliced almonds and sour cream finished the bowl. It was delicious and perfect for the gluten free eater. Diced avocados would also be a great addition. We completed the meal with Chips and Salsa from Los Hermonos--a favorite local Mexican restaurant. Perfect meal for Cinco de Mayo!

Cindy, SO good to hear from you!!! Both your rice bowls and enchiladas look amazing. Nick will be home for a long weekend, so I think I'll go this route for one of our meals :)

Cindy, funny I did something similar with stuff from my fridge! And yes, I love Penzey's. I need to drive an hour to get to one so when I do, I stock up!!
