Chicken Enchilada Recipe

Today, I'm linking up with Andrea for her Recipe Club! In the summer, I love to try out new recipes, and cook. I'm so looking forward to doing that! Only 4 and a half school days left until I can do just that! I wanted to share with you this recipe that I made for Cinco de Mayo. I love, love, love Mexican food, and love cooking for this holiday! This recipe is simple, low in calories, and delicious! Use whatever brands, and add ins you like, but here is what I used!

Ingredients: (Sorry for no picture!)

2 cans Enchilada sauce (I used hot and medium)
Shredded chicken
1 can green chilies
Shredded cheese
Tortilla wraps (I used whole wheat sandwich wraps cut in half)

First, I cooked my chicken in a skillet with lots of water to almost steam cook it. I flavored my chicken by adding taco seasoning, cumin, cilantro, salt and pepper to both sides. Once it was cooked through, I let it cool then shredded it. In a sauce pan, I mixed the two cans of enchilada sauce to get it heated through.

To assemble the enchiladas, I put a small spoonful of the sauce over the wraps. Then I added the chicken, some green chilies, and some cheese. I folded them over, and put them seam side down in a 9x13 baking dish. *Make sure you spread some enchilada sauce on the bottom of the dish to prevent the enchiladas from sticking!!* Continue this process until you don't have any room left in your dish, or run out of ingredients! (I told you this was simple!)

Once all of the enchiladas are in the baking dish, pour the remaining sauce over the top. Then sprinkle some cheese on top! Place the dish in a 350* oven uncovered, and bake for 20 minutes or until everything is heated through. (Everyone's ovens cook differently, so adjust your cook time accordingly.)

I served mine with some plain Greek yogurt, and guacamole on top. My sides were Knorrs taco rice and black beans. I am not going to lie, my mouth was watering as I was typing this out!  ;)

If you make these, please send me a picture! I love to see your creations! Leave me a comment, and let me know how you liked them!
