How to Make Cheesy chicken enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Pour taco sauce in bottom of large baking pan.
  2. Shred 2 fully cooked chicken breasts (I cook in crockpot & then shred w/ 2 forks). Or simply shred a rotissiere chicken, if in hurry.
  3. Mix 1 pack taco seasoning w/ 1 cup of water & mix into chicken well.
  4. Prepare tortillas as package directs. I didn't even heat my first or anything, and they were great.
  5. Make sure black beans & tomatoes are vell well drained. Stir & squeeze out excess moisture. Now, make a little assembly line to fill tortillas.
  6. Fill each tortilla w/ seasoned chicken, beans & tomatoes, and cheese. Make a pocket & roll up, making sure it is nice & tight. Place in pan and continue filling & rolling.
  7. Sprinkle with more cheese. Cover very loosely w/ alumninum foil & bake for 30 mins. Remove foil & bake another 10 mins, or until the cheese is melted to your liking.
  8. Top with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and shredded lettuce. I served w/ yellow rice and some fresh cilantro. You can always add corn to the filling recipe too.

Low in fat and high in protein, chicken breasts are a healthy and easy dinner option. If not cooked properly, though, they can be dry and not something the family...
