      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. (If you don't have cooked rice you can put your dry rice in the steamer basket in this step.) Fill your TM bowl with 1 litre of warm water. Place your chicken pieces on the varoma trays, leaving enough gaps for steam to circulate. Set your TM for 17 min/Varoma/speed 4.

    2. Set chicken in varoma aside and empty water from TM bowl. Your chicken may not be cooked through at this point. That is ok, it will be cooked further later.

    3. Spray a large (at least 2 litres) baking dish lightly with oil and place your rice into the dish.

    4. No need to clean bowl. Place onion and garlic into the TM Bowl and chop 8 seconds/speed 5. Scrape down sides with spatula.

    5. Add butter (or oil) and vege stock concentrate and Bacon (if using) then saute 4min/Varoma/speed 1.

    6. Tip onion and garlic onto rice in baking dish and stir through using spatula. No need to clean bowl.

    7. Place tomatoes, capsicum and carrot into TM bowl. Chop 10 seconds/speed 6. Scrape sides and repeat for a few more seconds if carrot pieces are too large.

    8. Add the Mexican Seasoning and mix in speed 4 til seasoning is incorporated.

    9. Add chicken pieces that were set aside, then 6min/varoma/Gentle stir setting reverse. MC on.

    10. Pour Chicken and sauce into baking dish, stir through rice with spatula.

    11. Top with salsa, then cheese.

    12. Bake uncovered in 190°C for 10min or until cheese is nice and golden.

    Serve with sour cream and Guacamole/Avocado.

Tip

This is a great way to use up leftover rice!!

You could add kidney beans in with the chicken for extra bulk and flavour.

For a vegetarian alternative, leave out the Chicken and add a tin of your favourite beans instead.

    This dish is great! My 1.5 year old loved it along with myself and hubby. It gave us enough for dinner and lunch the next day for the 3 of us aswell as one more serve of lunch the following day.

    It will be on heavy rotation on our menu plans and I have already told friends about it who can't wait to make it too!

    Thanks!!

    Submitted by kniki on 24. June 2019 - 09:56.

    This dish exceeded my expectations!

    I had some baby spinach leaves to use up so I chopped them finely and mixed through the rice when it was cooked.

    Also we didn't have any salsa, so I used half a tin of tomatoes for the sauce and sprinkled the other half on top before the cheese. We did have some salsa verde though, which I drizzled over my serving, with sour cream and avocado.

    Thanks for a wonderful recipe! I'm looking forward to putting this on my regular meal rotation, and will use others' suggestions in future, like beans and other veg.

    Great dish. I added fresh chilli at the tomato and carrot stage for a bit of a kick. Also added a can of black beans. I would do less rice, more chicken next time. Flavours is great, had it with corn chips used to scoop it up with sour cream. Left overs in tortilla wraps for lunch the next day with sour cream and coriander.

    Submitted by howlauren on 23. December 2017 - 12:40.

    Ok this is delicious. I read a few comments prior to starting and decided to skip the chicken in the varoma and went straight to cooking onion and garlic with chicken stock paste rather than veggie. Mixed that through the rice, added red and green capsicum + carrot, tomato to thermi and then just store bought salt reduced taco seasoning then added chicken and a diced chorizo to it and cooked 10 mins on varoma setting. Put a layer of sour cream over the rice, poured chicken mix on top, then half a jar of salsa followed by cheese, 10 mins 190 etc.
    YUM!!

    Submitted by heidi_hi on 18. November 2017 - 16:36.

    I now make this fortnightly as we love it so much!

    I've simplified the recipe to cook the chicken in the sauce (Reverse Speed 2/3) which shreds the chicken nicely, which we all prefer. I also blitz the onions & garlic with the other veg and leave it in the sauce (only because I'm lazy). I then spread the chicken & sauce over the rice, top with cheese and bake!

    So quick & simple!

    Wow! This one's a keeper!

    I made this tonight, exactly as per the recipe, and it was amazing. The only thing i was missing was the sour cream, but it was still fantastic.

    I used my own taco seasoning (about a tablespoon - not quite enough, but it was all I had left!), and served wtih ThermieFit's Spicy Guacamole - I didn't bother washing the bowl before making it, so the flavours melded perfectly!

    Child thought it was a little 'boring', but hubby and I absolutely loved it, and are very pleased to have leftovers for tomorrow night!

    Thanks for the recipe Smile

    Really great recipe!! Even though I didn't add the complete 2 cups if salsa, I thought it was actually too much salsa. This could very well just be for the type of salsa I used though!  I think with 1 1/4 cup salsa this would be 5 stars for me.
