I got this recipe from here.  It’s the same when I do it except that I like to add green chilies and black beans to my enchiladas.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped (about a cup)
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 large cans of enchilada sauce
  • Grapeseed oil, peanut oil or canola oil – a high smoke point vegetable oil
  • 2-3 cups of cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • Salt
  • 2 cups grated cheese (about 1/3 lb)

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2 Dice chicken and onion and 1/4 cup of  sauce in a pan. Saute until cooked. Sprinkle with a little salt. Set aside in a bowl.

3 Prepare the tortillas. Heat a small light skillet on med-high heat. Add a teaspoon of oil (high smoke point oil as indicated above, we use grapeseed oil) to coat the pan. Dip a tortilla in the sauce to coat the tortilla with sauce on both sides. Place the tortilla in the skillet and heat for a few seconds, until the tortilla begin to show some air bubbles. Use a metal spatula to flip to the other side for a few more seconds. Set aside on a plate. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

4. Open black beans, cheese and chilies and set to the side by the chicken.

5 Assemble the enchiladas. Use an 8×12 inch pyrex baking dish. Place a couple spoonfuls of the chicken mixture in the center of a tortilla, add some cheese, chilies and beans and roll it up. Place in the baking dish and repeat until all of your tortillas are neatly placed in rows in the casserole dish. Cover the tortillas rolls with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese.

6 Place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

Use a metal spatula to serve.
