Mexican/Italian Casserole



This is another throw together recipe.The idea was a Mexican Chicken rice dish.
But I have more Italian seasonings then Mexican so alas it's an Italian seasoned Mexican dish...

3/4 of a pound of Chicken, sliced in chunks
1/4 of a red pepper, chopped
1/4 of an onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Italian seasonings
Chili powder
salt
pepper
1 15oz or bigger can of tomato sauce
1 cup of rice
1 can of corn
1/2 cup of cheese

First sautee the chicken, onion, red pepper and garlic until chicken is white. Sprinkle on Italian seasonings and chili powder. Cook until the chicken turns brown.
In a casserole dish, stir tomato sauce, rice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. (if you like lots of flavor add a tablespoon or so of the Italian seasonings and chili powder to this as well. Add Chicken mixture.
Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the rice is looking almost done.
Stir in corn. Top with cheese. Let cook for another 5-10 minutes. Bon App├ętit!
