Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Enchilada

3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup whole kernel corn
1/2 cup grated carrots
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 cups grated light cheddar cheese
5 serving Casa Mendosa Whole Wheat Tortillas
4 serving No name Original Pasta Sauce

Recipe Directions for Chicken Enchilada

  1. Filling

  2. Combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Set aside.

  3. Tip: You can use the meat (both light and dark) from a rotisserie chicken to save time.

  4. Enchiladas

  5. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray two 9 x 13-inch casserole dishes with cooking spray. Add 1/2 cup sauce to filling and mix well. Set aside 1 cup cheese for sprinkling over rolled enchiladas.

  6. Working one at a time, spread a heaping 1/3 cup filling in centre of tortilla. Top with a heaping tablespoon of cheese. Roll up tightly and place seam-side down in baking dish. Each dish will hold 5 enchiladas. Repeat with remaining tortillas, filling and cheese. Spoon sauce evenly over enchiladas, making sure each enchilada is covered with sauce. Top with reserved cheese. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly. Serve enchiladas hot with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of green onions on top. Enjoy!
