Taco Chicken And Rice With Corn Recipe - Easy #BackToSchool Meal With Whole Foods

I can’t believe it’s September 1. The summer flew by and now it’s time for the kids to go back to school. For many parents, including myself, back to school means back to busy. Parents juggling work, errands, doctor’s visits, after school clubs and activities, and sports may feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. And in the middle of a really hectic day, the last thing you really have the time and energy for is spending hours in the kitchen.

Whole Foods recently challenged me to come up with a tasty dish for those busy weeknights after school. I love to concoct recipes and am always up to a challenge like this. I chose to prepare my meal using ingredients from the Whole Foods 365 Organics line. The 365 Organics line is the Whole Foods store brand. This line of products contains the high quality and freshness you expect from Whole Foods while having a lower value-packed price as compared to big name brands.

By using a combination of high quality Whole Foods 365 Organics products along with fresh, organic tomatoes, I was able to put together a meal that the whole family enjoyed in very little time. Not only is this dish made entirely with organic ingredients, it is also gluten-free. Here’s how I made it. You can make this all on your stove pretty quickly, in about 20 minutes. You can also make it a one-pot meal that doesn’t heat up the kitchen, taking under 30 minutes using the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System.

When I hear the word taco, I know I’ll love it. I’ve never seen fire roasted corn, I bet that adds a nice flavor to meals. This is a very deliciously healthy recipe. Thanks for sharing.

That looks so good and I love that’s it’s already all together so there’s no building the taco. I’ll have to try this.

That fire roasted corn ingredient piques my interest. Is it spicy hot or just tempered by cooking flame?
