First chicken and rice with chipotle, then smoky enchiladas

Chipotle chicken and rice.

Karoline Boehm Goodnick for The Boston Globe

Chipotle chicken and rice.

Not quite your mother’s chicken and rice casserole, this flavorful dish uses bone-in chicken breasts cooked over rice. Cumin and chili powder spice up the dish, bell peppers add a nice note of sweetness, a smoky chipotle pepper in adobo lends richness.

Stretch the dish into a filling for enchiladas by adding black beans. Skip ready-made enchilada sauce and mix your own sour cream and tomatoes to give the rolled-up tortillas a creaminess that perfectly complements the heat. Garnish both meals with cilantro, scallions, and lime for added freshness. Use any other limes you have on hand in something tall, icy, and refreshing.
