One Pot Enchilada Rice Casserole


  • 1 cup dry long grain white rice (brown is great too, but takes longer to cook)
  • 10 oz enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • 1 tsp ground onion
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1 can (15oz) black beans, rinsed/drained
  • 1½ cup Mexican blend or cheddar-jack shredded cheese
  • Optional: chopped fresh cilantro or green onions for garnish, extra salsa, or guacamole
  1. Cook rice in a medium-large or large heavy pot, according to package instructions. While rice cooks, pre-measure all needed ingredients. Shred the chicken, if you’re using it. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Add all ingredients into pot of cooked rice, except for the cheese. Stir to combine thoroughly. Sprinkle cheese on top evenly. Bake uncovered about 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Garnish with cilantro or green onions, if desired, and serve with toppings of your choice.
