These chicken enchiladas were very inexpensive to make, costing only $4.65 for three. What's also important to note is that they are very tasty, full of flavor and quick to make. You will feel like you are splurging!
(makes 3 meals)
9 ounces raw Chicken Breast
2 Slices White Onion
1/4 of a Red Pepper
1 slice of Tomato, chopped
Ranchero Queso Fresco
Taco Style Tortillas
Mexican Blend Mixed Cheese
Sprinkle the chicken breasts with Chipotle Seasoning, and fry in pan on medium heat.
As the chicken cooks, add the red pepper and onion to the pan. Once the chicken is done cooking, remove it and set it aside to cool.
Once the red pepper and onion have cooked some, add the tomatoes, but only for a minute, to heat.
Once the chicken has cooled a little, start shredding it. I have found that the easiest way to do this is when it is still rather hot.
Start building the enchiladas by placing both the Ranchero Queso Fresco and the Mexican Blend Mixed Cheese in the middle of the tortilla.
Add the chicken and veggies, then add a dollop of sour cream.
Wrap the tortillas and top them with green enchilada sauce, more of both cheeses, and salsa. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Heat refried beans in a pan on the stove.
Plate the enchilada, add some refried beans, and enjoy!

Chipotle Seasoning .10
2 slices Onion .05
1/4 Red Pepper .10
1 Slice Tomato .10
