    Delicious. The enchilada sauce added so much flavor to the rice. Added black olives on top to bake. Topped with green onions & chipotle sour cream. Definitely making it again. Thank you.

    When I made this recipe, I left out the corn and bean. My children don’t eat them. I added chunks of pan seared marinated chicken leg meat and substitute the green sauce for the red. My family loved it. Will make again.

    It was perfect! I adjusted the amount of cheese (more cheese of course) and put a layer of chicken on top of the rice mixture.

    This dish was super easy and delish. I poached boneless chicken breasts in enchilada sauce, shredded and added to the casserole to make my meat-eater husband and grandson happy. I doubled it because my grandson who’s in law school had already asked for a to-go package to have additional meals for the week. I know I’ll be making this again. Thnx!!

    Enjoyed how easy to toss together. The next time to make it even quicker and increase vegetable intake I will use cauliflower rice.

    I’m lazy so I used full cans instead of measuring out cups so whole cans of sauce, beans and corn. I served diced fresh tomatoes, sour cream and quac on the side. It was a huge hit! Nothing left! Most definitely making this again!

    Tasted amazing! Easy to make,too. Will definitely make again.
    Pretty good. I served it with tamales and threw some sour cream on top. The sweet corn and cilantro together was an amazing flavor combination, next time I will probably add more of both as the bites without those felt lacking in flavor (or maybe I didn't mix enough cheese in). It was easy and I had most of the ingredients already. Hardest part was grating he cheese, so if you buy pre-shredded it'd be even easier! I might play around with adding some different ingredients (ground beef, onion, topped with pico de gallo).

    This dish is so good my whole family ate it up. I doubled the cheese as recommended and I used fresh rather than canned beans. Also added fresh cilantro, ground beef and tomatoes it turned out so good. We will be making it again

    This was amazing! Could use a tiny bit more cheese in the mix. But other than that it was super good. Added some tomatoes on top after cooking, made it that much better. 😁

    I changed it just a tad. I used a big can of enchilada sauce, I browned one lb. of ground beef. On the bottom of the casserole dish I covered the bottom with the enchilada sauce, cut up tortilla flats (floured) then I added the other ingredients. On top of the rice I put more cut up tortilla, put sauce on them and then added the cheese. OMG, was it so good and my husband being a picky eater loved it. I definitely will make again.
