Tasty Tuesday: Tropical Rice with Meat



Tropical Rice with Meat

2 1/2 cups multi-colored rice or the rice of your choice
2 cups cooked chicken
1 cup cooked chopped lean ham
1 cup chopped fresh green beans
1 cup black beans
1 cup fresh pineapple
1 1/2 cups chopped yams

The package of multi-colored rice called for 5 cups of water.  I used 6 cups of water.  Follow the directions of the rice you use and add 1 cup of water extra.

After the water boils, add dry rice, fresh green beans, fresh pineapple, yams and lean ham.  Let rice cook until done.

Stir in cooked chicken and beans.  You can chop the chicken or shred it.  Make sure this cooked chicken has NOT been cooked with onions!

Stir well to mix all ingredients.  If it appears too dry, you can add more water.  Cool.

Yield:  14 cups

Keeps in the fridge for three days and in the freezer for three months

*My thanks to Vicki Howell and Jackpot for this delicious recipe!!

Sounds yummy! Too bad my Ma can never make rice...it is always soggy and crunchy all at the same time!
