When the Mexican–American War broke out, he was put in command of the Regiment of Voltigeurs and Foot Riflemen. His second in command, Lieutenant Colonel Joseph E. Johnston would go on to become one of the most senior general officers in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He was distinguished for bravery at the Battle of Molino del Rey, and was brevetted brigadier general for conspicuous gallantry at the Battle of Chapultepec, where his regiment led the assault on Chapultepec Castle.
After the Mexican War Andrews returned to the pay department of the Army, gradually rising in rank. In late 1851 Andrews was promoted to Deputy Paymaster-General and in September 1862 became Paymaster-General of the United States Army.
Andrews retired from military service on November 29, 1864.
