1 ½ cups brown rice
3 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
8 table spoons of chicken fat or vegetable oil
1 cup of chicken meat
2 medium sized carrots
1 teaspoon of chili powder
Pepper and salt to taste
½ cup shredded lettuce
Cook the chicken meat
Pour 3 cups of water in a large bowl and bring water to a boil.
Add rice slowly while stirring
After 10 minutes reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes
Drain rice in cold water 3 times while shaking it.
Combine cooked chicken, tomatoes, onion, carrots and garlic in a blender and blend until smooth.
In a souse pan heat the oil, add the rice and cook it for 10 minutes while stirring.
Add the blended mixture and cook for another 15 minutes while scraping the bottom of the pen to stop the mixture from sticking.
Stir in the salt, lettuce, pepper and chili powder
Cover the top and remove the pan from the heat.
