Mexican Chicken Mushroom & Rice with Picante Sauce

One of those quick meals that has everything in one dish and has all the flavors of a good cacciatore style but with a mexican flair for sauce. Serve with warm tortilla chips,  and a nice glass of Sangria, to make your meal  complete.

The sauce is nice and thick and sticks to the rice and full of flavor.  One of the rewards for being a Foodbuzz featured publisher is being a taste tester.  We get the awesome opportunity to taste new products and review them.  Perfect for our family as we love Mexican style foods!
