Ingredients

  • 3 cups enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 2 cups chicken cooked and shredded
  • 15 oz black beans 1 can, drained and rinsed
  • 12 medium flour tortillas or corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese shredded
  • 1 tbsp cilantro freshly chopped
  • 2 green onions chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Make the Base: Add 1 cup of the enchilada sauce and cream cheese to a skillet over medium heat. Whisk until smooth, then mix in the chicken and black beans.
  • Make the Enchiladas: Spread another cup of the enchilada sauce over the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture onto a tortilla. Roll the tortilla around the mixture, and place it into the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and chicken.
  • Finish Assembling: Top the tortillas with the remaining cup of enchilada sauce and top with cheese.
  • Bake & Serve: Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned. Garnish with cilantro, green onion, and serve.
