  • Mix water, Rice Mix and butter in medium saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minute or until most of the water is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent rice and beans from sticking

  • Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes

  • For each tostada shell, top with 1/3 cup rice mixture, 1/4 cup chicken and assorted toppings, if desired

Cooking tip

Black Beans & Rice Wraps: Use flour tortillas (8-inch) in place of the tostada shells.

Serving Suggestion: Top with assorted toppings, such as shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped avocado, salsa, sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro.
