Hey guys! Sarah here with my first ever blog post, adorable right? Well guess what. Tonight I made one of my first real dinners, and it was so damn good, I thought I’d share it with you all. You’re welcome in advance. 😉 I got the recipe from Tip Hero but if you’re like me and don’t like having too many tabs open on the Internet, well you’re in luck, because I’m going to share with you the recipe on here, as well as my attempt at step by step pictures. Don’t judge, okay? I’ll get better in time, hopefully.
1 cup of uncooked basmati rice, rinsed.
1 cup of frozen corn, thawed.
15 ounce can of black beans, drained & rinsed.
16 ounce jar of salsa.
1 cup of chicken broth.
1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cayenne pepper.
1 teaspoon of oregano.
1/2 teaspoon of salt.
1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
2-3 chicken breasts, depending on size.
as much shredded cheese as your heart desires.
Preheat your oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix all of the ingredients (except for the shredded cheese), including: basmati rice, corn, black beans, salsa, chicken broth, cayenne pepper, oregano, salt, pepper, and chicken breasts in a casserole dish.
Cover the casserole dish and bake for 1 hour.
Remove from the oven, uncover and add the shredded cheese on top. Leave uncovered and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Don’t these ingredients just look FABULOUS!?
Okay, so the next few steps are pretty simple. Basically you just wanna throw that all in a decent sized dish. Yup, that’s it. Except for the cheese, of course. That’s going to go on top afterwards. Mix all the ingredients in the dish together, and then add your chicken, pushing it as far down as you can, trying to get most of it covered by the mixture. Then grab some tin foil, and tightly cover the top. Now you just gotta pop it in the oven for an hour and wait. Here’s some nice progress pictures, by yours truly.

Spicin it up… get it!? Haaaa.
Giving these chicken breasts a beautiful bath… Or something.
See ya in an hour!
Hello there, beautiful friend.
I know, I know. Professional food photographer over here. Anyways, after an hour you should have something that looks like this.
The next step is obviously the best part, besides eating it. Throw some cheese on this bad boy, and then throw him back into the oven until the cheese has melted. Depending on how much or little you used, your finished product might look something like this.
There ya have it folks, have you ever seen something more beautiful in your entire lives? Well, you probably have, but that’s not the point here. Congrats, you’ve successfully made it through my first blog post, and hopefully made it through making this delicious dish as well! If you do make it I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, because I thought it was hella good. Let me know if you did! xx
