In 1883, Kroger began as a single grocery store in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. It has since gone on to become one of the largest supermarket brands in the United States with over 2,700 grocery stores in 35 different states, and average yearly sales in excess of $110 billion. Kroger attributes its success to following the same principles Barney Kroger held when he opened his store in 1883 – never sell something you wouldn’t want yourself.


Following in the footsteps of Barney Kroger, the Kroger company constantly innovates itself in the pursuit of finding the best products and services for their customers. Whether it be mergers with companies such as Fred Meyer Inc. and Harris Teeter, creating Kroger brand name products, or installing the first electronic food scanner in the 1970s, Kroger is dedicated to providing the best for their customers.

  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cups Verde enchilada Sauce
  • 11oz can corn and peppers, drained
  • 14oz can fire roasted tomatoes (do not drain)
  • 1 cup quesadilla cheese, or preferred Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 1 ½ cups instant white rice, uncooked
  • 6-8 hard taco shells


  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Remove the skin from your rotisserie chicken and separate the meat from the bones. Coarsely chop into small pieces.
  3. Combine chicken, Verde enchilada sauce, corn and peppers, fire roasted tomatoes, quesadilla cheese, and uncooked instant white rice in a large bowl. Mix until just combined. Don’t worry if the mixture looks runny because the rice will absorb the liquid while it bakes.
  4. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13” glass pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Assemble your tacos. Top with your favourite taco ingredients like iceberg lettuce, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, or pico de gallo.
