Cooking last night wasn’t high on my list of priorities. Adding to my lack of motivation was the fact that there wasn’t a lot to choose from in the pantry – a can of beans, leftover rice and cooked chicken. Talk about a dull list of ingredients!

Mexican Rice and Chicken

What could I do to make this dish a bit more appealing? Add Tequila! Who doesn’t love Tequila?

The Tequila and lime added some much needed zip to my plain old rice and beans. Topped with a little cheese and sour cream, this meal turned out pretty darn good, considering it’s humble beginnings.
