The rice comes out so robust and flavorful. It's loaded with rice, black beans, chicken and cheese and is so delicious!

  • cans red enchilada sauce I used Old El Paso
  • 1 large tomato chopped into small cubes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley or cilantro optional

Directions:

  1. Cook rice according to instructions. While rice is cooking, coat chicken in 1/2 can of enchilada sauce, set aside. Add rest of enchilada sauces (1 1/2 cans) into pot of cooked rice and stir until mixed. Add in tomato, black beans, and chicken with enchilada sauce and mix.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Scoop rice mixture into a a large casserole dish. Mix cheeses together and then spread on top of rice, evenly across surface. Bake for about 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle with parsley/cilantro before serving.
