Burrito Bowls with Creamy Enchilada Sauce are so delicious with a bed of rice, black beans, grilled corn, grilled bell peppers, grilled chicken, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, and a creamy enchilada sauce on the side to smother over everything. Creamy enchilada sauce was one of those amazing mistakes that ended up working out perfectly.
We were making burrito bowls a few years back and the plan was to make nacho sauce for over the top and I was certain there was shredded cheese in the fridge. So I was whisking the roux and went to grab the cheese and there was no cheese. We always have cheese… how can we possibly not have cheese? Imagine Amber in freak out mode as the rice, chicken, corn, and bell peppers are all 5 seconds from being finished cooking. Plan B. I did have cream cheese and I did find a can of enchilada sauce in the pantry so creamy enchilada sauce was born. It is so yummy! Is creamy enchilada sauce a thing? I’m not even sure if its a thing or not but it should be.
Burrito Bowls with Creamy Enchilada Sauce are so good and you have endless possibilities of what you can put in them. Make some grilled steak or skip an ingredient to add something different like a Pico de Gallo. There is a lot of freedom to use the ingredients you like and swap out to cater to your personal taste. Make some of our Firehouse Guacamole to go on top.
