    Had a bunch of chicken left from my weekend smoke (almost like I planned it that way! [​IMG]), and needed to whip up a quick dinner. Made some rice and dumped 2-3 Tbsp. of my Baja Rub, and 2 Tbsp. of butter into the water as it cooked. For the rest of it I sauteed:

    1 red bell pepper

    1 med. yellow onion

    3 mushrooms

    2 C left over Baja Chicken cut into cubes

    Once the onions, peppers, and shrooms started to caramelize I added 1 bottle of alfredo sauce, 1 C sour cream, and 1-2 Tbsp. of Baja seasoning. Once the sauce was hot it got dumped over the rice and a bag of frozen peas was added - give it a good stir, add 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese and give it another good stir. Then pop it  into a 350° oven for 30 min, pull it out and top it with another 1/2 C of shredded cheese, bake for another 15 min.

    (try not to drool on it as you pull it out of the oven! [​IMG])

    .... plated up with some extra hot sauce on hand for those of us that like a little more kick!
