I threw this together the other night with ingredients I had and my husband said it needed to be added to the regular rotation! You could add beans to make it even heartier.

What a great weeknight supper! This would also be great for OAMC. I really liked the idea that this was not just another enchilada recipe. I did add beans too and I just placed the meat mixture over the rice and baked it. I served mine with homemade fresh salsa, guacamole salad, and flour tortillas. My husband likes his Mexican dishes spicy so he added Valentina hot sauce. This recipe is a keeper, thank you so much K.!

Big hit with hubby. I followed the suggestions of the previous reviewers: halved the rice, reduced the cheese, added black beans, doubled the salsa, topped with fresh cilantro.. Totally forgot the 1/4 c. of sour cream. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time), I'll do it all the same way (but add the sour cream and go back to the original cheese quantity).

This is fantastic, and so easy. I did make a couple of small changes. I only used 1 can of rice, and added a can of drained black beans. I also only used 3/4 cup of 2% sharp cheddar, and added 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro. I think the next time I make it I will double the salsa.
