chicken and vegetable enchiladas

>> Friday, September 17, 2010

i found this recipe for healthier enchiladas at a blog called hungry mom on the run. she's a mom of three little ones, an avid runner and somehow finds time to whip up healthy meals. anddddd i'm not sure she knows i read her blog - so hi karen!

back to the recipe, i only changed a few things from karen's version. they turned out pretty delicious and we didn't feel that bad eating them since it was packed with so many veggies. here's how to do it:

8 flour tortillas
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
1.5 zucchinis, chopped into small pieces
2 ears of corn, kernels taken from cob
1 can tomatoes, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
12 oz enchilada sauce (i used trader joe's brand)
2 cups cheddar cheese
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons cumin

preheat oven to 350 degrees. heat evoo in large skillet over medium heat. saute zucchini and corn for about 5 to 7 minutes, until zucchini is a little bit soft. in a large bowl mix together chicken, zucchini, corn, tomatoes, black beans, 6oz enchilada sauce, 1.5 cups cheddar cheese, spices and s&p. working one at a time, place a a generous scoop of the chicken/vegetable mixture in center of tortilla, roll it up like a burrito and place in a 13x9 casserole dish. repeat with the rest of the tortillas, placing them in a uniform line. drizzle rest of enchilada sauce on top of casserole and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. cover the dish with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes. remove tinfoil and cook for an additional 5 minutes until cheese is bubbly. serve with reduced fat sour cream and low-fat guacamole.
