It’s no secret we are big Mexican food fans in our house. We have Taco Tuesday every week, I make enchiladas on the regular, and salsa and guacamole are staples in our fridge.
One of my absolute favorite Mexican dishes is Arroz Con Pollo. It’s a favorite because it’s not only delicious, but also incredibly easy to make and you can also switch up ingredients here or there to keep it interesting.
This Arroz Con Pollo recipe in particular has been a recent favorite in my family. Even the kids love it.
You guys also know by now how much I love ALDI. It’s one of my favorite grocery stores for so many reasons. One, I love that it is so easy to navigate, two, it’s a place I can get in and out of in a hurry, three, they carry a TON of healthy, organic, and natural food options, and four, I love that they carry so many brands that are not only just as delicious as the national competitive brands, but more affordable.
This recipe is made entirely with ingredients I picked up at my local ALDI!
The Happy Farms cheese is $2.69 and the Kraft cheese is $4.99.
The Pueblo Lindo tortillas are $1.29 and the La Banderita tortillas are $3.99.
SimplyNature Blue Corn Tortilla Chips for dipping!optional
In a medium pot, add 1 cup of Basmati Rice and 2 cups of Chicken Broth, a little salt, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add peas and corn with about 5 minutes left.
In a separate large pan, add olive oil and garlic and turn on medium to medium high heat. Add chicken and then season with salt and pepper. Stir regularly until chicken is cooked all the way through. Once chicken is cooked through, add cooked rice, peas, and corn.
Add seasonings - garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder, and a little more salt and pepper. You can also add in a little salsa if you want to add a little more zest.
Squeeze lime and add cilantro over the top and stir well.
For serving: You can eat this dish plain or scoop into tortillas and top with shredded cheese, plain yogurt (perfect substitute for sour cream!), and salsa or guacamole (or both!)!
