Enchilada Rice Skillet Recipe

This recipe is one of my family’s favorites, it makes dinner for the three of us and two days worth of leftovers for me to take to work for lunch. I love it because it is a one dish meal and is so quick and easy to whip up when you need a good homemade meal after a long day.

Make the rice the night before and refridgerate it, otherwise it adds another 20 minutes to the recipe to cook the rice before adding it to the skillet.
