Favorite Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas


My own basic chicken enchiladas.















750 grams chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
1 onions
796 millilitres tomatoes, canned, crushed
540 millilitres kidney beans, canned
680 millilitres tomato sauce
2 garlic cloves
finely chopped
3 tablespoon chili powder
100 grams mozzarella cheese
100 grams cheddar cheese
100 grams monterey jack cheese
8 flour tortillas
9 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon butter


Put pan in high heat. Add two tablespoon of canola oil and a tablespoon of butter. Stir-fry chopped chicken and onion until lightly browned.

Sprinkle three tablespoons (at taste) of chili powder on the mixture and mix. Set aside.

In the same pan, put the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, red kidney beans and garlic together to boil over a medium heat. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.

While tomato sauce is warming, use another pan to brown the tortillas using a tablespoon of canola oil for each one. Also set aside. Warm stove to 400℉ (200℃).

In a 9"x13" pan, place all the tortillas side-by-side and fill with chicken mixture. Pour sauce in each tortillas before closing them. Pour the remaining sauce over the closed enchiladas. Spread cheese.

Cook for approximately ten minutes or until cheese colorizes. Serve with sour cream and chili powder.
