One-Skillet Cheesy Enchilada Orzo 

Note from Chef Alli: Everybody loves an easy skillet meal that features the familiar flavors of enchiladas and Colby-jack cheese, especially when it can be in the table in less than 30 minutes! 

1 cup dry orzo pasta

2 cups vegetable broth

1 - 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed 

2 - 15 oz. cans mild red enchilada sauce, may substitute green enchilada sauce, if desired 

2 cups frozen sweet corn, thawed 

2 Tbs. of your favorite taco seasoning 

1 cup shredded Alma Creamery Co-Jack Cheese 

optional toppings: diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, sliced black olives, sour cream, fresh salsa, sliced avocados

Combine orzo, broth, black beans, enchilada sauce, corn, and taco seasoning in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven; stir to combine. 

Cover the skillet, cooking over medium heat for 20-25 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is plumped and nicely tender.

Uncover the skillet, giving the orzo a gentle stir, then sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top; cover once more and remove from the heat, allowing the cheese to melt. 

Serve at once with the desired toppings.
