A few months back, I made a yummy Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice Bake. It was delicious. Since I made a salsa verde bake, naturally I needed to make a red enchilada rice bake. This Chicken Enchilada Rice Bake is packed full of deliciousness – chicken, black beans, corn, Rotel tomatoes, cheese, rice and enchilada sauce! It was SO good! I wanted to eat the whole pan. We did save some for lunch the next day, and it tasted great reheated.

This Chicken Enchilada Rice Bake is really simple to make. I used my favorite shortcut, rotisserie chicken, and it only took about 10 minutes to make. I used instant white rice for this casserole, but brown rice would be great too. Just keep in mind that brown rice takes longer to cook than white rice, so read the instructions on the package before making it for the cooking times.

  1. Yum, this looks fantastic. Even better, it's a dish my whole family would like (gotta grab onto those when I find 'em)!

  2. I have a question, the last ingredient shows as "1/2 cup chicken broth or water" but the recipe directions don't say where to use that ingredient?
