Mexican food is my all time favorite cuisine. Give me a Margarita, Tortilla chips, Salsa and I’ll be happy! This enchilada rice makes the perfect side dish for any Mexican meal. I love to serve my rice with some refried beans and tacos!

Homemade-Enchilada-Sauce

I made my own homemade enchilada sauce. It’s super easy to whip up and requires only pantry staples. If your short on time you can always use canned enchilada sauce or taco sauce.

This is also a great way to use up leftover rice. Toss already cooked rice with enchilada sauce, sautéed onions, garlic, corn and beans. That’s it!

All you need is 35 minutes and one pot to whip up this Enchilada Rice!
