It begins with a tasty chicken taco meat with homemade taco seasoning. I use leftover chicken taco meat to make chicken quesadillas for the kids next day. YUM.

If you don’t have an instant pot or don’t have time to make cilantro lime rice recipe then here is quick version with leftover white rice that will work great – In a non-stick skillet, saute finely chopped garlic in some vegetable oil, until golden (don’t let get dark in color). Stir in cooked white rice, lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt. Mix until combined and take off heat and let cool.

You could use guacamole instead of sliced avocados. 

You could use pico de gallo instead of salsa. 

An easy chicken meal prep recipe and is soon going to be your favorite too.

  1. When eating a meal that is prepped like this, do you heat it up again? Do you eat it cold? Do you take it apart to heat it, so the meat and rice are hot? I never really understood.
    Thanks.

    1. Great question Anna. It is meant to be eaten room temperature (stored in the refrigerator at home) , which is most school or work lunch situations. Hope it helps:)
