Sassy Chicken Enchiladas


Spice up your dinner with Sassy Chicken Enchiladas. A bold and fiery twist on classic Mexican flavors. My husband I love these. I sub fat free cheese when ever I can, and use a high fiber, low fat tortilla. What a great healthy dish!

Sassy Chicken Enchiladas



Cook time: 30 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 4-8
Ingredients
1 lb boneless, skinless, chicken breast or tenderloins
1 can tomatoes and chiles (10 oz)
taco seasoning mix, to taste
8 flour tortillas
2 c shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c cilantro, fresh, chopped
1-2 can enchilada sauce (10 oz)
Directions
1. Turn on a skillet to med-med high heat. Spray with non-stick spray.
2. Brown chicken for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Then add a minced clove of garlic, tomatoes and chiles (with juice), taco seasoning, and cilantro. Cover, and simmer until chicken is cooked through and juice reduces.
3. Turn off the heat and shred the chicken. (I leave it in the pan, saves a dish, and keeps it warm.)
4. Warm tortillas enough so they will roll. Place 1/8 chicken mixture, and 1 Tbsp shredded cheese on each tortilla and roll.
5. Place seam side down in a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour enchilada sauce over the enchiladas (add as much or little as you'd like). Top with remaining cheese.
6. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Garnish if you like, with some fresh chopped green onion, and some black olives. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
