Chipotle Chicken Fried Rice

National Fast Food Day is November 16th. Instead of hopping in the car and going to the drive-through window at the burger joint, why not celebrate at home with quick-and-easy weeknight recipes? Chipotle Chicken Tinga, savory Pollo (chicken) Asado, shredded Pollo Deshebrado and spicy salsa are key ingredients for home-cooked taste at fast-food speed.

Isn’t Fast Food Day the perfect excuse to ditch hours of kitchen chores – the cutting and chopping; peeling, mixing, kneading, boiling, baking, frying?

Oh, and the cleanup after – wipe down countertops and stove, wash the dishes, scrub the pans, mop the floor.

Go ahead – skip all the work and enjoy these nearly-effortless meals.
