Chicken + Black Bean Enchiladas
Author: The Happy Hungry Yogi
Yields: about 4 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
- 10 Trader Joe’s low carb tortillas
- 1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
- 1 c black beans, rinsed and drained
- 3 large handfuls spinach
- 2 c shredded cheese (any kind will work- I used grass-fed mozzarella but can sub dairy-free too)
- 1 1/2 c enchilada sauce
- optional sliced avocado to serve
- Preheat your oven to 350F. Lightly spray an oven-safe casserole dish and set aside.
- Place the shredded chicken in a large bowl and add in two tablespoons of the enchilada sauce and the black beans. Mix to combine.
- Create an assembly line by laying out the ingredients; sauce, spinach, chicken bean mixture, and cheese.
- Begin by placing a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread about half of tablespoon worth of sauce down the middle of the tortilla, next add a thin layer of spinach, then a few tablespoons of the chicken black bean mixture, and last about a tablespoon of cheese.
- Carefully roll the tortilla, tucking in the ingredients as you go. Place the rolled up enchiladas seam side down into the prepared pan.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the remaining tortillas.
- Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas and then sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
- Bake for 15 minutes until cheese has melted and the enchiladas are warmed through.
- Allow the enchiladas to cool slightly before serving.
Storing: Enchiladas will last for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
