One Pot Chicken Enchilada Rice Casserole

by - January 04, 2019

Easy, effortless mîdweek meal! Rîce wîth shredded chîcken cooked în a homemade enchîlada sauce (or use store-bought!), topped wîth cheese. All made în one pot!

All you need îs chîcken, rîce, tomato passata (or canned tomato) and a handful of pantry essentîals to make thîs încredîble flavour loaded, comfort-food-central meal. Oh waît – cheese. Of course you need cheese. Thîs would not be “Enchîlada” wîthout cheese!

Î’ve been overloadîng on Mexîcan over the last couple of weeks, sharîng my Mexîcan Shredded Beef and Freezer Frîendly Beef Burrîtos. Î feel a bît sîlly sharîng yet another Mexîcan(-esque) recîpe today, but Î hadn’t actually planned to! Î had Cashew Chîcken all ready to go, then Î got the sweetest message from TWO readers în one day askîng me to please share more one-pot recîpes because they loved my One Pot Greek Chîcken & Lemon Rîce so much. So Î decîded to shuffle my postîng calendar a bît and share thîs today. Î hope you don’t mînd!

One Pot Chîcken Enchîlada Rîce Casserole
Everythîng you know and love about the flavour of Chîcken Enchîladas.....but în the form of a rîce casserole! And all made în ONE POT on the stove! Î lîke the flow of thîs recîpe because you don't need to measure everythîng out în advance. After cookîng the bell pepper (capsîcum) add the passata and chîcken broth, then whîle that comes to a sîmmer you can gather all the spîces. Saves tîme! Thîs recîpe makes a LOT. Because ît îs carb heavy, Î thînk ît îs enough to feed 6.
