My Green Chilie Chicken Enchilada Rice Bake is the perfect weeknight dinner and works great as a make ahead freezer meal!

Green Chilie Chicken Enchilada Rice Bake

It’s no secret I love developing quick and simple dinner recipes with my favorite products.  Old El Paso enchilada sauce and chopped green chilies makes this rice dish so simple to prepare.  I also wanted to develop a recipe that you could freeze and have ready to heat up later or give to family and friends in need.  We sure love Mexican recipes and this one was a favorite for sure!

Hope you enjoy this simple dinner that is perfect for freezing to save for another time!

My Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Party Chippers make the perfect sweet treat for any party!  Sweet, salty and peanut buttery delicious.

Thrilled to partner with SKIPPY this today to create a fun Oscar inspired recipe with their Limited Edition Salted Caramel Peanut Butter.  Just the name alone had me drooling.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint.
My mom and I were baking together when I opened my new jar of Salted Caramel SKIPPY.  We both found a spoon to sample and quickly agreed it is amazing!  Not too sweet but just the right about of caramel to the already perfectly salty sweet peanut butter.  You are in for a treat!
Did I mention it makes the perfect party cookie?!  Obsessed with these!
Hope you enjoy!
