Chicken Enchiladas

People. This is good. Even better?  The recipe makes two casseroles…one to eat and one to freeze. Now, we are having this meal from the freezer this week so I’ll let you know if it doesn’t freeze well, but the recipe says it does!  I also used the skinny crockpot chicken to make this.

12 corn tortillas

2-3 cups skinny crockpot chicken

1 cup brown rice

1 cup frozen corn kernels

3 tablespoons tomato paste

3 cups tomato sauce

chili powder

1 tsp cayenne pepper

ground cinnamon

Monterey Jack cheese

Wrap tortillas in foil and warm in 275 degree oven while you prepare everything else.  Mix shredded chicken with rice, tomato paste, 1/2 cup cheese, and frozen corn.

For the sauce, mix 3 cups tomato sauce, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 tsp chili powder, and heat through, keeping warm until needed.

Remove tortillas from oven and switch to broiler on high.

Using two different square or round 9 inch containers, layer the following…1. Spread a little sauce on bottom 2. Tortilla layer (I used 2 for each layer) 3. About a quarter of chicken mixture for each dish 4. More sauce 5. another tortilla layer 6. Rest of chicken 7. More tortillas 8. Last of sauce 9. Grated cheese on top

wrap, label, and freeze other casserole now.

Put the other casserole under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until cheese melted.
