  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 Tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 Tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Chicken Breasts or 2 Cups Chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 Cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 28 oz Can Enchilada Sauce (you can find this in the latin section of your grocery)
  • 8 Flour Tortillas

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook onions and salt for 3 minutes.
3. Add red bell pepper and sauté for another 2 minutes.
4. Add cumin and garlic and sauté for an additional minute.
5. Remove the mixture from the pan and place in a bowl. After the mixture has cooled, add the chicken, corn, and 1 cup cheese and mix to combine.
6. Pour half of the enchilada sauce in a 9 x 11 inch baking dish.
7. Divide the mixture (about 1/2 cup each), placing it in the middle of each tortilla and rolling it up like a wrap (burrito shape).
8. Place the rolled enchiladas close together, seam side down in the sauced baking dish. Continue to roll the rest of the filled enchiladas.
9. Once you have finished making the stuffed enchiladas, pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over them and top with 1/2 cup cheese. *If you’re planning on making this dish another day, cover it and freeze at this point.
10. Cover the dish with foil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes (30 minutes if you are starting with frozen enchiladas.
11. Serve.
*Enchiladas will stay in the freezer for up to 4 months. For best results, prepare enchiladas then freeze. Do not bake.
