  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 bay leaf crushed
  • 1 cup cilantro-chopped
  • The juice for 1-2 small limes
  • 1 cup uncooked rice I used basmati as it cooks fast, is aromatic and flavorful
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 pack of The Better Chip Jalapeno flavored tortilla chips


  1. Add all the ingredients except the rice, avocado, lemon and tortilla chips into the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 hours.
  2. Now add the cup of rice (since basmati rice cooks fast), stir the mixture and cook on high for another hour.
