  3. Place onion, garlic, jalapeno and cilantro in base of Power Chef™ System fitted with the blade attachment. Replace cover and pull cord to process until finely chopped.

  6. Season with salt and pepper. 
  7. Set aside.
Enchilada Filling

  2. Set aside while preparing rice.
Mexican Rice

  2. Place onion and garlic in base of Power Chef™ System fitted with the blade attachment. Replace cover and pull cord several times until finely chopped.

  4. Add rice, stirring to combine. 
  5. Cover and bake 25 minutes.
  1. Divide filling between tortillas and roll. 
  2. Spread ¾ cup salsa verde on bottom of inverted UltraPro Roasting Pan cover (or use inverted Lasagna Pan cover and place aluminum foil over rice).
  3. Place enchiladas in cover, folded seam down, and top with remaining salsa verde. 
  4. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  5. Remove cover from rice and place inverted cover containing enchiladas on top. 
  6. Bake, together, an additional 15 minutes or until heated through.
