Today's Sunday Supper event is SIMPLE RICE RECIPES FOR DINNER and I'm ready to find some new dinner recipes containing rice. I knew immediately that I wanted to share this Tex Mex Chicken Skillet. The ingredients list isn't too long. Honestly if you wanted to cut it down a bit, you could sub in taco seasoning mix for the spices. But all-in-all, it brings together some pretty simple ingredients to make a fantastic dinner.

I struggle with finding good chicken recipes for Taco Tuesday nights. A couple of Sunday Supper chats ago, we discussed meal planning a little and I shared how I do themed nights in order to meal plan my weeks. I meal plan a month in advance and I stick to this format for the most part: Pasta Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Soup Night Wednesdays, Throwback Thursdays (make an old favorite), All-American Fridays (either pizza or burgers, I alternate Fridays), and then I make a more time-consuming dinner on either Saturday or Sunday. I alternate meats each day, so it's beef/sausage one day, and chicken, pork, or turkey the next. Sometimes, we'll eat tuna or have a meatless night, but it's more rare. A lot of people ask about if there is a dish that pops up that I'm not feeling like eating and I can say that I haven't run into that problem yet. I plan a lot of new-to-us recipes and there is always a variety, so it's rare that I don't want to eat a food that I'm making for dinner. I don't always stick strictly to my meal plan. Sometimes I fail to thaw meat out or something happens and I have to do a quick meal rather than a longer, more time-consuming meal and that is where I might switch up my recipes during the week. I utilize my blog archive, my Pinterest boards, and my recipe binder with magazine snipped recipes to pick recipes. I have used this method for quite a few years and it is what works best for me! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them!
