    cups chicken stock (low sodium)

  • 3

    oz tomato paste

  • 1/2

    tsp cumin

  • 1/2

    tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2

    cooked, diced or shredded boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1-2

    green onions, white and green parts sliced.

  • 1/2

    cup frozen or drained, canned corn kernels

  • Handful chopped cilantro

  • 8

    small corn tortillas

Directions

Step one: Preheat oven to 350. To prepare the sauce- In a med saucepan, combine oil, flour and chili powder. Stir together. Heat over medium heat until it begins to bubble. Whisk an cook the bubbling paste for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add chicken stock while whisking. Add tomato paste, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and salt. Whisk until smooth and continue to heat over a medium flame. Let sauce come to a gentle simmer, at which point it will begin to thicken. Once thickened, turn off heat am set sauce aside. Step two: Add drained, rinsed beans, chicken, diced tomato, green onions, chopped cilantro, and corn to a large bowl. Mix together. Step three: coat an 8x8 casserole dish with non-stick spray. Warm tortillas in microwave for 10 seconds to make them soft and pliable. Fill each tortilla with 1/3 cup of filling and roll gently but tightly. Place filled tortillas in the casserole, seam side down. Once all filled enchiladas are in the dish, cover with sauce. Bake in oven for 25 min or until sauce is bubbly. ....... So the recipe originally calls for black beans and avocados instead of black beans and chicken. I just served with sliced avocados and lime wedges on the side. Yum :)
