Enchilada Night!

I tried to trick my boyfriend into thinking I'm domestic by cooking dinner last night. Don't get me wrong, I can bake for days, cooking on the other hand is more of a struggle. I turned to my step-mom for a recipe because she's pretty much the best cook in the world. This is her go-to when she has to prepare for the 200 person PTA meeting (she's super mom). It's actually not too difficult and super delicious! Try it out! :)

Chicken Enchiladas & Black Bean Salsa
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup sour cream
1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green
chiles, drained
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
Vegetable spray
1 (8 oz) container sour cream
1 (8 oz) bottle green taco sauce
Toppings: diced tomato, chopped avocado, chopped green onions, chopped cilantro and limes
Black Bean Salsa:
2 cups chopped tomato
½ cup sliced green onion
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
1 (15 oz) can black beans - drained & rinsed
1 (15.25 oz) can whole kernel corn
1 jalapeno pepper finely chopped
¼ cup lime juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
Stir together the first 5 ingredients. Spoon chicken mixture evenly over each tortilla , and roll up. Arrange in a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish. Coat tortillas with vegetable cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Stir together sour cream and green taco sauce. Spoon over hot enchiladas just before serving. Sprinkle with toppings.
Black Bean Salsa:
Mix all ingredients and chill for 2 hours.

The fresh cilantro MAKES this recipe! 

I just boiled the chicken and shredded it with a fork (3 breasts)

After mixing cheese, cilantro, chicken, sour cream, and green chilies, roll up those tortillas! 

For the topping mix green taco sauce and sour cream to spread on the enchiladas after they bake

Mmmm homemade salsa! Just a bunch of chopping!

And I had extra cookie dough left over from the cookie dough cupcakes Anna FORCED me to whip up while she was in town ;)

Nice and brown out of the oven!

Spread with the sour cream sauce

Add the salsa on top and enjoy!
