Whip up these simple and delicious enchiladas made with fluffy Jasmine Thai in less than 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare rice according to package directions; let cool slightly. Stir together rice, beans, 1 cup Monterey Jack, salt and pepper.
Grease 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 cup each red and green sauce lengthwise down along each side of the prepared pan, so that sauces meet in the middle.
Place 1/3 cup rice filling in the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly and place seam-side down in baking dish. Spread remaining red and green sauce over top of enchiladas, lengthwise down along each side of the pan so that sauces meet in the middle. Sprinkle top with remaining Monterey Jack.
Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through, and cheese is melted and bubbling.
Drizzle with sour cream and sprinkle with cilantro.
Sprinkle finely chopped tomatoes or diced avocado over enchiladas if desired.
You’ll always come out on top with the ever-classic rice and beans combination. Whether you use it in a casserole, a salad, a soup, or as burrito or taco filling, it’s a delicious combo and these Enchiladas with Red and Green Sauce filled with it are no exception. Enjoy the best of both saucy worlds with this classic Mexican dish or our Mexican rice in rice cooker that’s as colorful and vibrant as it is tasty.
While this bright and colorful recipe is as beautiful to look at as it is delicious, the vibrant appearance isn’t the only difference between red and green enchilada sauce. Because red enchilada sauce is made with red chilies, which tend to be on the sweeter side, it is usually the milder of the two, although both can be adjusted to the desired level heat. Red sauce is also made with cooked peppers, as opposed to the green sauce, which is a raw sauce made of fresh green ingredients like green chiles, tomatillos, and sometimes jalapenos that are blended together.
