- refried beans
- 10-15 oz

ON THE SIDE
1Pre-heat oven to 350
2Place both chicken breasts in a pot of boiling water with spices of your choice, I always add two dried chili peppers and some pepper flakes but you could do it without that easily. Boil for about an hour until the chicken is cooked through and will easily pull apart with a fork!
5Then pull out whatever baking dish size or shape you have that best fits. In the bottom pour some of the enchilada sauce until it completely coats the bottom to prevent sticking.
6Let the layering begin!! Lay down the tortillas to cover the bottom of the pan (i usually have 4 per layer with the pans i use), then a thin layer of the re-fried beans (I’ve found its easier to do the bean spreading if you heat the beans up prior), Then a layer of the cheesy/sour cream/chicken mixture. At this point you can add olives or tomatoes or anything else you want and then top with a layer of the enchilada sauce. Another layer of tortillas and repeat until you've just barely reached the top of the dish!
