Chicken Enchiladas

Once you've prepared by making the chicken base and cheese sauce, assembling these tasty enchiladas takes no time at all!
  • 1/2 of a 15oz can navy beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 portion Shredded Chicken Base
  • 1 portion Cheese Sauce
  • 1 C shredded 4 cheese Mexican blend
  • 1/2 of a 4oz can diced green chile peppers, drained
  • 4 flour tortillas, 8inch
1.  Preheat oven to 375°F.  Coat rectangular baking dish with cooking spray.  For filling, in a medium bowl combine beans and chicken.  Stir in half of cheese sauce, half of the cheese, and the green chiles.
2.  To assemble enchiladas, place about 1/2 C of filling on each tortilla.  Roll tortillas and place, seam side down, in baking dish.  Top enchiladas with the remaining cheese sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
3.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until heated through.  If needed, cover loosely with foil the last 10 minutes, to prevent overbrowning.  If desired, serve with chopped tomato, fresh cilantro, and/or sour cream.

Robyn's notes: to make these ahead, follow instructions through step 2.  Then cover baking dish with foil or cling film, and place entire dish into a resealable freezer bag.  Seal and freeze up to 3 months.  To serve, thaw in the fridge overnight.  Preheat oven, remove bag, cling film/foil, and follow instructions in step 3.  These were pretty good, though I'm not giving them 4 stars because I can't eat beans or chiles, so I had to do a lot of picking things out.  Watch me demonstrate this recipe on youtube!

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
