Lean Chicken Enchiladas
2 large chicken breasts roasted and cubed
1 28 ounce can of green chili enchiladas sauce
12-16 corn tortillas
1 ¼ cup shredded cheddar or jack cheese
1 medium onion finely diced
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
Pinch cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl mix chicken with spices and about ¼ cup of the enchiladas sauce and mix well. Dip each tortilla into the enchiladas sauce before stuffing with chicken, a small amount of onions and cheese, reserve ¼ cup of cheese for topping. Roll each tortilla and place into 9×13 baking dish. When all enchiladas are rolled, pour remaining sauce all over being sure to cover all areas of the tortillas. Sprinkle on remaining cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes until the center is bubbling.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
