“No chopping, no fuss, just a delicious dump dinner.” ~ Pillsbury
All you need to make this great casserole – boneless, skinless chicken breasts, long-grain white rice (I used basmati), black beans, chili powder, chicken broth, red enchilada sauce and shredded cheddar cheese.
When chicken is ready, remove from oven. Remove chicken from casserole and place on plate (cover to keep warm), stir rice and beans until mixed well, then place chicken back and top with cheddar cheese. Place casserole back in oven uncovered and bake until cheese is completely melted – remove and serve with sour cream, hot sauce and your favorite Southwest/Mexican toppings. Enjoy!
