Simple One Pan Fiesta Bake - whip up this easy dinner in just one pan.  Must try!

Not only do I love to make easy meals but I love it even more when there is minimal mess.  Can I get a high five on that one?  One pan dishes are the absolute best because they taste great but don’t have a sink full of dishes to wash.  Today’s recipe is just that-

Simple One Pan Fiesta Bake - whip up this easy dinner in just one pan.It’s ooey, gooey and cheesy good.  I make a similar one with ground beef but found this recipe on the back of a package and knew that we had to test it out.  Some of my favorite recipes have come from the back of packages.  What about you? 

One Pan Fiesta Bake

Heat oil in medium sauce pan. Add chicken and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Stir in the rest of ingredients (minus the cheese and optional sour cream). Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. Top with shredded cheese and let melt for a couple of minutes. Serve topped with sour cream (optional).

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp oil (I used canola)
  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 c. rice, uncooked
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 c. whole kernel corn
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (I used Mexican mix)
  • sour cream (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat oil in medium sauce pan.

These could easily be made into soft tacos or burritos. Make as directed and then fill a tortilla with the ingredients. Yum!

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    Is that regular rice or instant rice? I would like to assume it is just regular. :) but so many one pan dishes use instant.

  2. MIchele says

    What seasoning goes in this? I assume its something like a taco seasoning that makes the rice orange?

    • Diane says

      I think the orange color you see is the cheese..I don’t see any seasoning listed in the recipe, although I would sprinkle on some type of Mexican spice to give this dish another layer of flavor.
      :)
