Mexican Chicken Mushroom & Rice with Picante Sauce

One of those quick meals that has everything in one dish and has all the flavors of a good cacciatore style but with a mexican flair for sauce. Serve with warm tortilla chips,  and a nice glass of Sangria, to make your meal  complete.

The sauce is nice and thick and sticks to the rice and full of flavor.  One of the rewards for being a Foodbuzz featured publisher is being a taste tester.  We get the awesome opportunity to taste new products and review them.  Perfect for our family as we love Mexican style foods!

                                                       A delicious sauce full of flavor!

Here a great recipe!

1 16 oz can of mushrooms sliced or fresh mushrooms sliced
3 green bell peppers cleaned and sliced

Now I'm sorry I didn't ask for a jar. This does look mouth-watering.Part cacciatore, part south-of-the-border.

Yummy I love Mexican Food. Pace Picante Sauce is really good. I used one jar to make burritos, they had a really nice flavor. I can just imagine how good this chicken and mushrooms tasted.
