Enchiladas

I was craving Mexican but didn’t have much time to cook so I made these for dinner one night. They’re super fast, really easy and gave me leftovers for days!

Ingredients:

  • 6-10 Tortillas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1 ½ cup shredded cheese
  • 1 package Taco seasoning
  • 1 large can enchilada sauce

Serves: 6-8

  1. Dice chicken breasts into little pieces. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a skillet with chicken. Mix in a generous amount of taco seasoning (about 2 tbsp). Cook all the way through (about 10 minutes).
  2. Cook refried beans on the stove over medium heat until warm all the way through.
  3. Wrap tortillas in a wet paper towel and microwave for 45 seconds.
  4. Take a tortilla, and put beans, chicken, cheese, some onions and bell pepper into it. Wrap it up like a burrito, with the ends just barely tucked under. Line side by side into a Pyrex dish. Continue to do this with each tortilla until a big Pyrex dish is filled.
  5. Pour the can of enchilada sauce all over the tortillas.
  6. Sprinkle cheese over the top.
  7. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is browned on top and the sauce is bubbling.
