Wow, that came out good!

I've never really made up a recipe from start to finish, but I couldn't find anything that sounded like what I wanted. I was craving some kind of Tex-Mex chicken with rice and beans and corn, and couldn't find a single recipe that sounded quite right. Sooo, I made up a recipe and wow, it came out really good!

So, here's the recipe! Enjoy, kittens!!!

Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice

2 tbsp olive oil, separated
1 can corn
1 small onion, chopped
1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1 in. strips
1 pkg taco seasoning
2/3 c. water
1 can black beans
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small red pepper, chopped
1 1/2 c. cooked rice
1 small jar chunky salsa (I used medium heat, you can use whatever you like)
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:Preheat oven to 375. Heat 1 tbsp oil in skillet. Add corn, saute until it starts to brown. Place corn in large casserole dish. Heat 1 tbsp oil in skillet. Saute onion until soft, add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Once cooked through, add taco seasoning packet and water. Cook for 1 more minute. Add to casserole. Add all remaining ingredients, and mix well. Top with cheese. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
