Chicken Enchiladas

I love Mexican food. I mean, who doesn’t!? I will not get tired of it even if I eat it every night. It is so comforting and most dishes don’t take a long time to prepare.
I went grocery shopping today with the Chicken Enchiladas ingredients on my shopping list and mind you,  forgot to buy two important ingredients. The one important ingredient I forgot was cheddar cheese, and the other one was refried beans. Well, refried beans is not a required ingredient, but it goes really well with Enchiladas as a side. So, make sure you get your shopping list all straightened out.


1/2 lb. breast fillet
1/2 cup  chopped onions
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 Jar Trader Joe’s Enchiladas Sauce (truest me, it’s the best)
4 medium size Tortilla breads
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for the side

1 can refried beans
Sour cream


Prepare the pyrex dish: place a very thin layer of vegetable or olive oil all over your dish. This is very important and it prevents the Enchiladas to stick to the dish. Start the oven.

Cut the chicken fillets into small cubes.

Saute the onions until golden, add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Don’t add too much pepper because the Enchilada sauce is spicy itself.
Saute the mushrooms separately and set aside.

Let the chicken cool down a bit. Spread them on a cutting board and chop them finely.


Prepare the rolls: Pour some of the sauce into a plate, place the tortilla breads in the sauce one by one, make sure you get the sauce all over the bread. Fill them each with some chicken and mushrooms. Gently fold the tortilla and place it in the pyrex dish. Repeat this step for as long as you have room in your dish. When you are done filling the dish with your rolls, pour the rest of the sauce over the rolls, covering them completely. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese ( I didn’t have cheddar cheese so I used mozzarella).

Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until the cheese becomes golden. You can garnish with some chopped green onions and serve with sour cream and refried beans.
