Chicken, Vegetable and Rice Enchilada Skillet in the pan with 4 white bowls stacked to the sideOne of my least favorite foods to cook is traditional rice. I pretty much stink at it. For some reason I have a flaw that does not allow me to get the rice fully cooked. So I love finding short cuts to still allow me to include rice in my meals without the hassle of preparing it the slow way.
