Cheesy Enchilada Rice and Beans Casserole

Posted by Oriana Romero MOMMY’S HOME COOKING From Yummly

This Cheesy Enchilada Rice and Beans Casserole recipe is delicious and easy to make! It makes a perfect weeknight meatless dinner!! Only 6 ingredients.

Even though, I’m latina I have never eaten an enchilada, much less used enchilada sauce. Having said that, I was greatly surprised how this recipe turned out.

I loved it. Actually, I almost (note I said “almost”) ate the whole thing myself.

It’s nothing fancy, but let me assure you — it’s tasty! It’s vegetarian (although you can add diced chicken if you’d like).

Oh, my…it hit the spot! It comes together in a single bowl with just 5 min prep and 6 ingredients. Doesn’t get any better than this!

This is just perfect for those busy weeknights when you want to offer your family something hot and delicious, but without slaving in the kitchen for hours.

I’m telling you I’ll be making this a lot!
