Dinner Time! Baked Chicken Cheesy Enchiladas


Dinner Time! Baked Chicken Cheesy Enchiladas

This recipe has worked its way into our meal plans AT LEAST twice a month! Although it is not for my picky eater (Miss Genevieve) - it is otherwise a HUGE family favorite at the Powell’s, and something you could easily make all organic, and also edit to give to your littlest littles! 

Here is what you’ll need to make 6-8 enchiladas: 

  • 9x13 Baking dish 
  • Cooking spray 
  • Olive oil
  • Prepared chicken (aprx 4 cups)
  • 2-3 Peppers 
  • 1 Can of Black Beans 
  • Enchilada Sauce
  • Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Burrito sized tortillas

Optional: Onion, avocado, rice, sour cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray or light olive oil.
  3. Dice up peppers, saute in olive oil on medium heat until soft
  4. Cook beans, set aside 
  5. Take your pre cooked chicken (we like to make a weeks worth in the croc pot and use for recipes throughout the week) and combine with the peppers on stove top with 3/4 jar of the enchilada sauce. Warm.
  6. Combine shredded cheese, chicken, beans, and peppers into tortilla and roll up one at a time. Place in baking dish until full.
  7. Top with shredded cheese and left over enchilada sauce.
  8. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then serve up and enjoy!

Here are some yummy side dish ideas to create a complete meal your family is sure to love:

  • Cilantro Lime Rice.
  • Mexican Street Corn
  • Mexican Rice.
  • Chips and Salsa.
  • Chips and Guacamole.

For my littlest littles, I keep a bit of all ingredients aside and simply arrange on their plate instead of serving burrito style!
