    Chicken Enchilada Rice Casserole


    Recipe Description
    Bare bones meal that you can dress up as you have more
    money.
    Preparation Steps:
    Cook white rice, (I used steamer or can use leftover)
    Cook chicken meat (or use leftover as I did)
    Open can of enchilada sauce
    Open bag of cheese or shred a block of cheese.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    30 min
    Ingredients:
    Cooked white rice, 3 cups
    Cooked chicken meat
    1 can red enchilada sauce
    shredded cheese
    optional: mushrooms,
    olives, sour cream, salsa
    Serves:
    2 or as much as you make
    Directions:
    In a 9 in glass pan, pour in the rice and fill bottom evenly.
    Put the chicken pieces on top, pour can of enchilada sauce
    over all, sprinkle cheese liberally over all.

    Bake 350 degrees, 20 min. just to heat through nice and
    hot.

    Super cheap, and can add the optional ingredients as
    money allows. I did not stir it, left it layered and it all
    baked up well together.

    Hi again, I made this last night with leftover round steak cut into bite-sized pieces and it was much better than with chicken. My teen almost didn't leave enough for me to bring to lunch!

    And a side note, I do not put the "optional sour cream, salsa" in the mixture, I just offer it on the side. But I suppose you could if you wanted to.

    It looked so good that I wanted to try it. Didn't have cooked chicken or red enchilada sauce. So I used some beef fajita meat and green enchilada sauce, cut canned green chilies in strips and covered it with cheddar. Wow!! It's definitely a keeper. And when I have chicken and red sauce, I'll make that, too.

    Thanks!!!

    We had this last night and it was great. I did add some sliced olives to my side thought. I only made half of the recipe because it is just me and DD and we are not big on eating the same thing several times in one week.

    For a easy enchilada sauce I use tomato paste and thin it with water to whatever consistency I want. Then I add packaged taco seasoning to taste. Sometimes I add hot sauce if I want it spicy.

    I am going to try this. I think I will use the green enchilada sauce I already have though.
