The flavors from South-of-the-Border come together in this great One-Dish Fiesta Casserole. Succulent chicken, creamy rice and zesty veggies are the main attractions. It’s a well-rounded meal that’s perfect for that next potluck party. Right before serving, top with a dollop of sour cream and colorful avocado slices for a little extra festive flair.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/2 cup mild, medium or hot salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 bag (14 to 16 oz.) frozen Southwest-style vegetable blend: broccoli, corn, black beans and red peppers, thawed
  • 2 cups cooked turkey or chicken (about 10 oz.), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced (optional)
