Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients:
1 brown onion, peeled and halved
1 zucchini, roughly chopped
1 red capsicum, deseeded and roughly chopped
20ml olive oil
1 tsp chilli powder, or to taste
400g tinned tomatoes
2.5 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I baked mine earlier in the day)
250g corn kernels (tinned or fresh)
8 tortillas
Grated mozzarella cheese, to sprinkle on top

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Spray a medium sized baking dish with olive oil (whatever you can fit 8 enchiladas in ;))
2. Add onion, zucchini and capsicum to TMX bowl. Chop for 1 second bursts on speed 5, mixing with spatula occasionally until everything is evenly chopped to your liking.
3. Add oil and chilli powder. Cook for 5 minutes/100 degrees/reverse + speed 1 + MC off.
4. Add tinned tomatoes and any desired seasoning. Cook for 10 minutes/100 degrees/reverse + speed 1 + MC off. You will need to cover the lid with the simmering basket.
5. Remove 1 cup of tomato mixture and set aside. Add chicken and corn to TM bowl and mix through remaining tomato mixture. It may appear watery but that's okay.
6. Warm tortillas in a pan or the microwave. Put a couple of heaped tablespoons of chicken mixture into the middle of a tortilla and wrap quickly. Transfer to baking dish, fold side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
7. Pour reserved tomato mixture over enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes.
8. Serve with salad and homemade potato wedges! YUM! :D

I forgot to put cheese on my enchiladas before I baked them, so I grated some parmesan over the top :)

MEP - I substituted beef mince for the chicken. The corn is a great sweet addition.  It's a really lovely recipe that was enjoyed by all. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Katie's DH said -  I made your enchilladas tonight and they were delicious. Very tasty and so easy to make. I cheated and used a BBQ chicken but apart from that as per the recipe. Used multi grain tortillas which were a nice healthier option as well. Thanks muchly!!

This looks good Amy.  :) Did you use flour or corn tortillas?

This sounds good.  I have some Mountain bread.  Do you think I could use this ?

Thanks Den ;D I'm pretty sure I used flour tortillas. They were high-fibre ones from a packet :-)) Next time I'm going to try making my own :D

Chookie, thanks you too :) I hope you enjoy them with your Mountain bread. Can you tell me what is the difference between that and tortillas?

I'm glad you enjoyed it MEP! I will try it with beef too, that sounds yummy :D
I loved the sweetness of the corn too :) I have been thinking I could replace it with pineapple and make a Hawaiian enchilada ;D

Hi Amy,

Richard (Katie's DH) here. I made your enchilladas tonight and they were delicious. Very tasty and so easy to make. I cheated and used a BBQ chicken but apart from that as per the recipe. Used multi grain tortillas which were a nice healthier option as well.

Thanks muchly!!  :)
