These one pot meals are kind of fascinating me right now. I need more of these in my life! Anything that only dirties up one pot when I am cooking is fine by me! Fewer dishes to wash is a WIN in my book. Can I get an amen?! 🙂
Plus, there is just something really simple about a full dinner that can be made in one pot.
Just look at that ooey, gooey, cheesy goodness!

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup long grain white rice uncooked
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes undrained

Add the oil to a large 5 quart skillet or pot and preheat over medium heat for 1 minute.
Add the onion, bell pepper, chicken, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the onion softens and chicken is no longer pink, stirring occasionally.
Add the rice to the pot and stir. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Some of the chicken and rice should be golden brown.
Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, green chilis, enchilada sauce, frozen corn, chili powder, and cumin. Stir, and bring the liquid to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cover the skillet/pot. Cook covered, stirring occasionally. Let it cook until the rice has absorbed all of the liquid (about 22 minutes for white rice, brown rice will take longer).
Remove from the heat. Add the black beans and stir to combine. Top with cheese. Cover and let it rest for 5 minutes.
