chicken or beef stock or use filtered water
good enchilada red sauce
sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
pepper jack cheese, freshly grated
long-grain white rice
sliced black olives, for garnish
Gather your ingredients (oops, no photo, my bad).
Add the stock or water to a skillet over medium heat.
When the liquid begins to simmer, add the ground beef.
Cook until the beef has browned and the water has evaporated.
Chef’s Note: Use a wooden spoon to break up the ground beef.
Add 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce to the beef, and stir to combine.
Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 390f (200c).
Add the rice to the remaining enchilada sauce. and then add to an ovenproof serving dish.
Chef’s Tip: In order for the rice to cook properly the sauce should be boiling hot when you add the rice.
Add the beef mixture over the top.
Cover with the two cheeses.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and bubbly.
Add the sliced black olives to the top.
Serve with some nice warm tortillas, and sour cream. Enjoy
Keep the Faith, and keep cooking.
