I am so glad you’re here.

I need someone to share this Chicken Enchilada with.

You see sis brought too many tortillas than what she needs and rather than let it go to waste, I was assigned to decided to make it into Chicken Enchilada.

Now, I have too many Chicken Enchilada than I could ever eat.

So go ahead, grab that other fork and start munching….if you get thirsty, you can just grab that other glass right there.

I’m going to tell you a secret but don’t tell anyone, okay?

It’s actually my first time to make this dish and I was a little scared of how it might turn out.

I was thinking maybe it was better off making those wholewheat tortillas into glass coasters…heehee.

But I’m happy I made this, it’s a little salty but it turned out well..

There are lots of versions of this dish, I made the easiest I could find..hee.

  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning

  1. Roast chicken in the oven for 40 minutes at 200°C. Let it cool.
  2. Shred the chicken and set aside.
  3. In a pan, heat olive oil and sauté garlic and onion until onion becomes translucent.

  5. Add tomato sauce, water and taco seasoning.
  6. Simmer for a few minutes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. You can choose to coat the tortillas with the sauce before wrapping the shredded chicken with it or you can just wrap it directly.
  9. Just place 1-2 tablespoon of shredded chicken on each tortilla and roll it and layer it up in a baking pan.
  10. Pour sauce over the tortillas and sprinkle with grated cheese
  11. Bake in the oven for 10-20 minutes or until the cheese gets bubbly.
  12. Serve with a dollop of sour cream…but I didn’t have any, so we ate it as it is
