Fiesta Rice with Chicken Recipe

I have a a delicious recipe to share with you guys this afternoon – this Fiesta Rice (and QUINOA!) and Chicken dish is easy to make and it’s filled with flavor. I love that this recipe has several canned ingredients – Cans seal in freshness, flavor, and nutrition, naturally.

The can is one of the best ways to get food from the farm to your family — sealing in freshness, flavor and nutrition so they can be served anytime with confidence. Plus, it cuts your prep way down – it’s very easy to open a can and get cooking 🙂
