Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas
Easy-to-make, topped with tomato salas and cheese is packed with flavor!

This is a dish that is super easy to make.  For the cooked chicken, you could buy some chicken tenders and stir-fry them up, or you could purchase a cooked whole chicken from the grocery store.

Chicken Enchiladas

Serves 4

2 cups ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups salsa
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, finely chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground chili powder
1.5 cup cooked, cubed chicken
Salt and pepper
1 cup Moneterey Jack cheese, grated
Eight - 6 inch (15 cm) flour tortillas
Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl combine the ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup salsa, red bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, tomato, cumin, chili powder and chicken. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper

Spread mixture evenly onto each tortilla and roll up. Place in lightly oiled 9 x 13 inch (33x23cm) pan, seams down. Spread remaining 1 cup salsa on top of tortillas, and sprinkle cheese over salsa. Bake 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Serve, passing sour cream.

Note: If you like refried beans then spread a thin layer on each tortillas before adding the filling.
