Chicken, corn, and black bean enchiladas

This is a week night dinner that can really fill you up and doesn't take too long to make at all! I don't make it too often, but I like the change up from making tacos. 

2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 cup Mexican cheese blend 
12 corn tortillas 
2 10 oz cans enchilada sauce
2 Tbs taco season 
1/2 cup salsa 
1/2 cup Southwest Blend Corn (mixture of corn, black beans, peppers and onions) 

This is the Southwest Blend Corn I use-- I find it in the freezer department.

1. Warm oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Mix shredded chicken, southwest corn blend, taco season, and salsa in pan and warm through. 

3. Warm tortillas according to package directions- I wrap mine in saran wrap and warm in microwave for 60 seconds. 
4. Pour 3/4 can of enchilada sauce into 9x11 cake pan 
5. Take a spoonful of chicken mixture, place in tortilla, and roll. Make sure not to roll too tight or the tortilla may rip. Place in sauced pan. Continue to roll and place in pan. 
6. Once done rolling, pour the rest of the enchilada sauce onto rolled enchiladas- this is where I used the 2nd can of sauce. 
7. Cover with cheese, wrap with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 350. 

8. After baked for 15 minutes, uncover and bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. 
9. Serve with salsa, guacamole, or anything else you might like!

  2. Enchiladas are my favorite go to order at a Mexican restaurant. When I make them at home, I am boring and just use chicken, cheese and enchilada sauce. I like how you spice them up with veggies!

  3. i have never made enchiladas! clearly that needs to change.

  4. This sounds really easy and looks great! How do you cook the chicken though? Can you buy it already cooked? I see cooked chicken in a lot of recipes and have never been able to figure it out!

  5. I pinned this, so I can make it sometime soon. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Those enchiladas look delicious!
