Homemade Chicken Enchiladas

It can be hard to find an enchilada sauce that has good ingredients, so I decided to make my own!


Enchilada Sauce Ingredients: 

1 can of fire roasted tomatoes

1 jalapeno, de-seeded and diced

1/2 tsp cumin powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Sprinkle of pepper


Enchilada Ingredients:

3 chicken breast

1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1 small can of green chiles

1 medium yellow onion

10-15 corn tortillas

1 cup of cheddar cheese



1) Blend all enchilada sauce ingredients together until smooth and set aside

2) Preheat oven to 375 degrees

3) Boil water until roaring. Cut chicken breasts in half and place in boiling water for 15-20 minutes until thoroughly cooked (internal temperature of 165 degrees F)

4) Cut onion into strips and sauté over medium heat until soft

5) Once chicken is done, drain the water. Place chicken back into pot and shred with two forks. 

6) Add green chiles and cooked onions to the shredded chicken and stir

7) Add 1-2 spoonfuls of drained black beans and a few spoonfuls of chicken mixture into corn tortilla

8) Roll tortilla up and place in a large baking dish

9) Continue until pan is full or ingredients are gone

10) Pour enchilada sauce over the rolled enchiladas. Top with cheddar cheese

11) Bake for 15-20 minutes
