One pot cheesy chicken Tex Mex – it’s fast delicious and makes a great freezer meal too! Can be enjoyed with chips, in tacos, burritos, enchiladas & burrito bowls.
This one pot Tex Mex dish is a family favorite and a great meal to make when you need to make something quick. It comes together in about 40 minutes and makes great leftovers as well. My whole family loved it!
This recipe is a spin off from one of the most popular recipes on my site – one pot burrito bowls! YUM!
This dish is loaded with chicken, rice, beans, tomatoes, cheese and many more delicious flavors! This Tex Mex can be used for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, burrito bowls or on top of nachos. There is so many delicious ways to enjoy this meal.
Here are the product links to the Old El Paso products I used in case you can’t find them. Mild red enchilada sauce, chopped green chiles, taco seasoning and flour tortillas.
This dish makes a lot of food, so I love to freeze the leftovers! Place the leftovers inside of a tortilla and roll into enchiladas. Then pour enchilada sauce over the top and add shredded cheese for another meal.
