Recipe Continues Below
- In medium bowl, stir together Avocado Salsa ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until ready to use.
- Add rice (from burrito bowl kit), 1 3/4 cups water and butter to 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, stir chicken, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and seasoning mix (from burrito bowl kit) until well coated. Cook over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very little liquid remains and chicken is cooked through and begins to brown.
- Divide rice among 4 serving bowls. Top with chicken, avocado salsa, queso fresco, cilantro and queso blanco sauce (from burrito bowl kit). Serve with lime wedges on the side.
- If you’d like your avocado salsa spicy, just substitute serrano chile for the jalapeño in this recipe. If you like it even spicier, don’t seed the chile before chopping.
- If full-sized tomatoes are not in season, try substituting chopped cherry tomatoes to get the best flavor.
