"REDNECK" Chicken Enchiladas-so EASY, so YUMMY!
This is one of my families favorite recipes I’ve made to date. It’s packed with flavor and you can make it as spicy, or in my case as mild as you wish. When serving young children or those with a sensitive palette to spicy foods (like myself), it’s best to go the mild route with this. ENJOY!
"REDNECK" Chicken Enchiladas
Boneless chicken breast (1 breast per adult)
2-4 C grated mozzarella cheese (or finely grated Mexican cheese)
Garlic salt or 1 clove of fresh garlic clove (crushed)
1 Tbl. of fresh cilantro or ½ tsp dried cilantro (fresh is always best)
½ onion-finely chopped
1 tsp Greek seasoning (optional-I just like the flavor myself)
1 can refried beans
Corn or flour tortillas (make sure you soften them up in the microwave first to make it easier to work with them-don’t overcook or they’ll be too dry however)
1 can Enchilada sauce (I’m a wimp so I prefer mild)
1 small container of Sour cream
Cook on medium-high in a large skillet and add the following:
Chicken, chopped onion, sprinkle to taste: garlic salt (or fresh crushed garlic clove), cilantro (fresh or dried), Greek seasoning (optional). Continue cooking until chicken is cooked thoroughly. (I like it a little on the charbroiled side for flavor). Set aside.
Heat a can of refried beans till warm. (add a clove of crushed garlic if you like). Set aside.
Warm up tortillas just before you are ready to add ingredients to soften.
This part is optional and it’s a trick my Mom taught me for those of us who can’t take too spicy of a sauce. If you’re serving this to kids it’s a good idea too:
Mix one can of enchilada sauce with one small container of sour cream. It makes a nice creamy sauce that even the pickiest kids will eat. Otherwise you can just dollop the sour cream on everyone’s individual servings once its served, if preferred.
