1 garlic clove, minced 2 tablespoons butter 2 cups cooked chicken1 tablespoon chili powder 2 3/4 cups chicken broth, divided 1 jar Picante sauce, divided 1 bag (2 cups) Success® White Rice 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided 8-10 flour tortillas (I used Artisan Flatbread)


In a skillet, saute garlic in butter until tender. Stir in cooked chicken, chili powder, 1/4 chicken broth, and 1/3 cup Picante sauce. Heat through and set aside. Cook rice as directed on the packaging. Next, in a medium saucepan add rice, 2 1/2 cups chicken broth, and 1 cup of Picante, cover, and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Stir in chicken mixture, then add 2 cups of shredded cheese and stir. Spoon filling into each tortilla, off-center, and fold. Arrange tacos into an ungreased 13×9 in baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and bake on 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with remaining Picante sauce, cheese, and lettuce.
