Bored of your normal beans and rice? This Enchilada Rice will make your tastebuds happy!



  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 can (10 oz) mild Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ Chopped Green Chiles
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the water into the pan. Bring to a boil. Add the rice, stir, then cover the pan and reduce the heat to a simmer. Let the rice cook for 15 to 18 minutes, until the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
  3. Pour the enchilada sauce into the rice, followed by the green chiles and the cilantro. Stir to combine.
