Easy Chicken Enchiladas
Its hard coming up with a quick and easy dinner every night of the week that is not only tasty but good for you too! Here's one meal thats a real favourite in our house.
2 chicken breasts - cooked and shredded
1 med onion, diced fine
2 lb grated cheese (I use 1 lb pepperjack and 1 lb med cheddar)
1 small onion, diced
3 or 4 small green chilies, chopped fine (or 1 4oz tin)
12 tortilla wraps (I use the low carb tortillas)
1 tin (approx 16 oz) enchilada sauce
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time : 30 minutes
Soften the onions in the microwave on high for approx 2 minutes. For each enchilada, place a single tortilla wrap on a plate. Add some chicken, grated pepperjack cheese, onion, chilies and wrap tightly. Do not overfill. Place in 9x13 pan. Continue until pan is full. Any unused chicken, onion or chilies can be scattered on top of the rolled tortillas. Top generously with grated cheddar cheese. Cover well with the enchilada sauce, Bake at 350F for approx 30 minutes or until it is hot and bubbling.
Top with sour cream and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
Note: this recipe tastes much better if made the day before.
When using the low carb tortillas, a serving contains approx 20g carbs.
