Cheesy Chipotle Chicken and Rice
- 1/2 c. cream cheese
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1/2 c. water
- 1-2 T. chipotle-flavored hot sauce -- I like the variety offered by Tabasco
- 1 c. uncooked white rice
- 1 c. sliced mini sweet peppers
- 1 pound chicken tenderloins
- 1 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Stir the cream cheese, milk, water, hot sauce, and rice in a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Top with the sliced peppers and the chicken. Sprinkle with the paprika and shredded cheese. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake at 375° F for 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve warm and with more hot sauce.
