- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 1 can (19 oz) Old El Paso™ mild enchilada sauce
- 1 can (16 oz) pinto beans, drained, rinsed
- 1 can (11 oz) Green Giant™ SteamCrisp® Southwestern style corn, drained
- 1 package (8.2 oz) Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (ten 6-inch tortillas)
- 2 cups finely shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)

In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook rice and vermicelli with butter over medium heat until rice mixture is golden brown, stirring frequently. Stir in water and seasoning mix from rice box. Heat to boiling. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook 15 to 20 minutes or until rice mixture is tender. Stir in 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, the pinto beans and corn.

Arrange tortillas in 2 rows of 5 in baking dish, placing tortillas open end up, slanting and overlapping. Pour remaining enchilada sauce evenly over enchiladas. Cover tightly with foil.
