Step by Step Method

Step 1

Prepare rice according to package instructions, replacing the water with the chicken stock.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 3

Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread the refried beans over the bottom of the baking dish.

Step 4

In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice, cubed chicken, enchilada sauce, cream of chicken soup, green chiles, black beans, cream cheese, green onions and half (8 ounces) of the shredded cheese in a large bowl. Spread on top of the refried beans.

Step 5

Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle on the remaining half of cheese. Return the casserole to the oven and continue baking until the cheese is completely melted, about another 7-10 minutes.

Step 6

Serve immediately.

I made this for Cinco De Mayo to accompany the main dish. It was absolutely delicious and used the leftover for breakfast with egss and tortillas.

If you love authentic Mexican food then you will really love this. Although to be honest, I am not an expert on what exactly authentic Mexican food is, but this is pretty darn good! I would recommend wrapping this in a burrito shell. Fantastic!!!
