Chicken Enchiladas, Orale!

After last nights Fried Rice I still had two chicken breasts left over so I decided to make Chicken Enchiladas! BUT I didn’t have enchilada sauce or Tortillas 😦    Well that didn’t stop me one bit! I decided to make my own sauce and my own Tortillas. Of course I look in my cabinet and we are out of chili powder, and cumin so I did some researching as did some altering to a recipe.

Enchilada Sauce

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 2 Tblsp Flower
  • 1 8 Oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Water
  • 1/2 tsp cumin ( I used taco season)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 Cup Chili Powder

I didn’t have Chili Powder so I made my own. 2 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Cajun Season, 1 tsp Paprika, 1 tsp Garlic & Herb Season, 2 TBsp Taco season. It came out not too bad actually. I guess there is cumin in taco seasoning. lol.

Then Whisk in the water and Tomato Sauce, and last add the spices and mix all together and cooked till thickened. Which will take about 10 mins.

Next I cooked the chicken I had left over which was one big breast and one smaller, I boiled them for about 20 mins till they cooked all the way through. Then I shredded them and then added some sauce to marinate, covered and set it aside.

Take the wet and mix into the dry, mix well and dough will form, take out and kneed in some flour then place ball to side and let sit for 15 mins.

Then take dough and roll into 8 balls, then roll them out into circles.

Cook in a pan ( I hear a flat pan or a cast iron works best)

Now that everything is done….let assemble the final product!

I love cheese on my enchiladas so I added a mixture of cheddar, Mozz,  and Pepper Jack! YUM!!!

Okay so your going to take chicken lay it on the Tortilla, add cheese, roll and add to dish with a layer of sauce on the bottom, fill it and then add sauce over the top. I had some left over chicken so I added that on top too. 🙂

Then add cheese to the top and be very generous 😉 Bake in the Oven at 380* for 15 mins.
