Chicken and Black Bean Green Enchilada Rice Bake

Okay peeps, time for another yummy recipe you have to try! This one was definitely a hit in my household! I got this from the amazing "Picky Palate" blog- SO easy and quick and delish! So give it a try! Start with these ingredients:


You want to mix the chicken, enchilada sauce, olives, tomatoes, sour cream, salt, pepper, and cumin...yummm -OH and I added a can of green chillies for some spice.:)
Looks like this tastiness:
JUST put the rice and some black beans added on top down first...as so:
THEN add the delicious mixture on top- followed by a layer of cheese...it seriously melts to perfection in the oven in 30 minutes tops!
I added sour cream and chalula on top- the husband was impressed.:) Then for SUCH healthy desert- easy peasy strawberry shortcake...mmmmm :)
