Fiesta En Tu Boca Enchiladas #SundaySupper

September 16, 2012

For anyone that doesn’t get the Spanish translation, it’s “Party in Your Mouth” Enchiladas and they are exactly that.  These easy to prepare, rolls of flavor are so tasty you will want seconds…and thirds…and maybe even fourths.  Shhh, I won’t tell anyone.  When I brought leftovers to work, I practically had to beat my co-workers away with a stick after they tried a bite.

I like to start off this meal with a Chilled Avocado Soup (in the summertime) and serve with Spanish rice.  If you like an extra bit of heat with your meal, this Hot Habanero Relish is an amazing accompaniment!

Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas

printable recipe

For the Chicken and White Bean Filling:

  • 1 tsp evoo
  • ½  white onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles
  • 15.5 oz can Cannellini beans
  • 2 cooked shredded chicken breast (I like to boil and shred mine and save the stock to use in the rest of this recipe)
  • ½ cup chicken stock from boiling chicken breast
  • 1 tsp cumin

For the Green Chile Enchilada Sauce:

  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth (from boiling chicken earlier)
  • 7 oz can chopped green chiles
  • 2 jalapeños, chopped (de-seed if you want to go light on the heat)
  • salt
  • ½ cup light Greek yogurt
  • ¾  cup reduced fat Mexican cheese
  • 8 medium whole wheat tortillas
  • chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°.

For the Filling:
In a medium pan, heat olive oil on low. Add onions, garlic and saute until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Add green chiles, beans, chicken stock and cumin. Mix well and cover. Simmer on low 15 minutes. Remove cover, add chicken and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until it thickens and liquid boils down. Set aside.

Enchilada Sauce:
In a large nonstick pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and starts to turn translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add flour and stir well. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth, until it becomes smooth. Cook over medium heat until the sauce boils and thickens, about 4-5 minutes. Add green chiles, jalapeños, and salt to taste. Cook another minute then remove from the heat. Stir in the Greek yogurt.

Spread about 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9×13″ baking dish. Fill each tortilla with 1/3 cup of the chicken/white bean filling. Roll the tortillas and place seam side down in the prepared baking dish. Continue filling remainder of the tortillas.

Pour the enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas. Top with cheese. Cover with aluminum and bake 20-30 minutes, until the enchiladas are hot and the cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with LOTS of fresh cilantro…and the Habanero Relish, if you please.

  31. Oh I love enchiladas. I think your title fits perfectly, these are a party in your mouth!


  32. I always like the addition of beans in things like enchiladas…not only are they frugal, but so healthy for you too. Great job!

  33. Kim Bee Says:

    This is divine. I feel like such a slouch for making something so easy. Great Sunday Supper meal.

  36. girlichef Says:

    Yes on the whole menu…that would make me a very happy camper! These sound delicious.


  37. I make enchiladas most of the time, but have taken a break recently because it causes so much chaos. It’s never enough for them. Do you have this kind of excitement in your house over enchiladas? Your dish looks great, so I can imagine they clamor for this dish!


    • Umm, yes. My husband and I single-handidly (well, double, technically) eat over half of it at the first serving. So, you might want to make two batches if you have an xtra hungry household!


  38. I love the addition of white beans. I love this lighter recipe!


  39. I haven’t made enchiladas in a long time. I can’t really say that the reason is. Thanks for the idea and your enchilada looks fantastic!
