Chicken Enchilada Skillet

I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day. I sure did. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend spent with family and I didn't have to do a thing. I enjoyed every minute of it! Anyway, I was in the mood for Tex-Mex for dinner but wanted to mix it up a little.  Both my husband and I love skillet meals and this is one of my favorites. I love the flavor combo and it is healthy and very filling.

Chicken Enchilada Skillet
Serves 6
Cal 232, Fat 8.1g, Carbs 21.3g, Fiber 2g, Protein 19.3g

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 can rotel, undrained
1 can enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 1/2 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Add chili powder, garlic, and cumin. Cook for about 30 seconds before adding enchilada sauce and rotel.
Bring sauce to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Season to taste with salt. Add chicken, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, and cooked rice. Stir and cook until heated through.
Top enchilada mixture with remaining cheddar cheese, cover, and cook another five minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with chopped cilantro, if desired. Enjoy!

  1. Visiting from In & Out of the Kitchen. I'm all over this! Less time consuming than rolling enchiladas and WW to boot! Thanks!

  3. Made this last night... probably used too big of a can of RoTel... and my enchilada sauce tasted like the can... so I chucked it and ad libbed! Very tasty anyway!
