Recipe - Chicken Enchiladas


I made Chicken Enchiladas the other night for the very first time. I don't know why I've never made them before they are super tasty and easy to make.

Here's how I made them:

1 onion, finely sliced
500g chicken breast fillet, cut into strips
1 x 375g jar enchilada sauce (I used Old El Paso brand)
1 green capsicum (bell pepper) sliced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup grated cheese
8 tortillas

Pre-heat oven to 180C (350F)

In a fry-pan using a little oil (or spray with cooking spray) cook the onion for 5 minutes until soft. Add the chicken and cook for a further 5 minutes or until brown. Add the capsicum and half of the jar of enchilada sauce. Stir to make sure that all the chicken is coated in the sauce.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 15 seconds (or you could warm them in the oven for 2 minutes)

Divide the meat mixture into 8 portions and place them on the tortillas. Roll the tortillas and place them seam side down on a lightly greased baking tray. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the the tortillas. Top with grated cheese & tomatoes.

Place the tray in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Serve with salad.


They were given a thumbs up by everyone and I was told that I can make this again! Maybe I might be able to sneak some other veggies in next time :D  You know how sneaky us Mums can be :P
