Salsa Chicken Rice

Salsa Chicken Rice
inspired by GF Herald.... yup, the local newspaper

1 8.5 oz package Uncle Ben's Ready Rice Santa Fe flavor
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 6 oz. package Southwest flavor grilled chicken (love this stuff)
2 bell peppers (I found I prefer red)
1 cup salsa
1 can black beans
1 can corn
2 tablespoons lime juice
Cheddar cheese
2 green onions

Throw the rice in the microwave and let the magic happen. Meanwhile, chop the peppers and chicken into bite-sized pieces. Heat a large pan up with the olive oil on medium heat. Add chicken and bell peppers. Cook for a few minutes till peppers are tender-ish. Add the rice that was hanging out in the microwave, salsa, black beans, corn and lime juice. Continue to cook everything is heated through. Top with cheese and garnish with green onions.

I made this for lunch yesterday, and this makes quite a bit. Later I come home from work and 90% of it is gone! I'm like "Honey, did you have friends over? Where did all this food go?" "I ATE IT ALL IT WAS SO GOOD! You need to make it every day this week!" So I'm making it again tomorrow....
I bet you can tell I wrote this recipe because I use terms like "tender-ish", but that's what's awesome about cooking as opposed to baking - eyeballing it!
