The Real McCoy’s Really Good Rice Puffs : Baked Jalapeno Cheddar were absolutely ridiculously good. You will be coming back for more! These had that loaded pop of cheesiness followed with a dose of bang, or as my husband said zesty kick without having to have a fire extinguisher on hand for your mouth. This is a great snack that is gluten free, baked, has no trans fat, made with organic brown rice, and is non-gmo. Just as the label states, these are really good rice puffs!

Real McCoy’s Rice Chips: Sea Salt were delicious as well. They had a very flaky crunch with a salty nutty flavor. Addicting, once you start eating them, it was hard to stop. They are great tasting with salsa, hummus, and chili cheese dip. This is a great snack that is gluten free, has no trans fat, non-gmo and is made of organic brown rice kernels.

Real McCoy brand is a family owned company with over 50 years of experience who use local farmers to grow their ingredients and take pride in every chip they create. The quality in taste definitely proves that!

Crock Pot Chicken & Rice

I got the idea for this recipe from stick a fork in it.

 

Now, ours seemed a bit salty. I am still trying to figure out it was the Italian Dressing or the Cream of Chicken Soup. However, it was still a huge hit in our home, and we will definitely be making this again!
