    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.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 pound chicken cubed
    • 1/2 cup green onion sliced thin
    • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
    • 14.5 ounces 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
    • 15 ounces 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 4 ounces 4-ounce can Old El Paso green chiles
    • 1 cup jasmine rice
    • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Old El Paso taco seasoning
    • 14 ounces 14-ounce can Old El Paso red enchilada sauce
    • 1 cup shredded cheese
    • Salt and Pepper to taste
    • Optional toppings: Sour cream tomatoes, sliced olives, green onions, avocado, cilantro
    • Optional sides: Tortillas tortilla chips, lettuce

    Instructions

    • In a large non-stick pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Stir in the chicken and cook until no longer pink. Stir in bell pepper and onion and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes, black beans, green chiles, rice, taco seasoning and enchilada sauce. Bring to a simmer; cover with a lid and then turn the heat to low. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring half way in between.
    • When rice is done, add salt and pepper to taste. Add cheese and your favorite toppings.
    • We like to serve inside tortillas or over a bowl of lettuce.

    Notes

    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. Cover with foil, label and stick in the freezer. Then when you’re ready to eat it, place it in the refrigerator the night before and then bake at 350ºF for 20-30 minutes covered and then 10-15 minutes uncovered.
