MEAL PREP
  1. Lay out 6 containers (I use these). Place 1/2 cup rice in each container. Divide the rice, chicken, vegetables, cheese and salsa evenly between the containers.
  2. Top with desired toppings and seal. Refrigerate up to 4 days or freeze.
  3. To reheat, microwave 2.5 minutes (or 3.5 minutes if frozen).
