 Chicken Enchiladas

700g tomato passata

100g water

Fajita sauce

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 small white onion, finely chopped

500g boneless chicken breast or fillets, cut into cubes

1 green chilli, finely chopped without the seeds

1 tablespoon Mexican spices

1 can (420g) red beans, drained

100g canned corn

8 medium tortillas

250g mozzarella cheese, finely chopped

250g grated yellow cheese

To serve


Sour cream

1 lime or lemon, quartered


Preheat oven to 180C.

Mix in a bowl the Fajita sauce together with the tomato passata.

Place a layer of tomato sauce on a 35 by 30 cm baking sheet. Keep enough sauce for the top dressing at the end.

In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the Mexican spices, diced chicken and green chili.

Sauté the mixture for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally or until chicken is cooked.

After the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and add the beans, corn and mix.

To assemble the enchilladas, create an assembly line that includes: tortillas, chicken mixture, and cheeses (mozzarella and yellow mixed together).

Place a tortilla on your working surface and top with 1/8 of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with two tablespoons of cheese. Wrap the tortilla in a roll and put it in the baking pan with the tomato sauce. Repeat the process for the remaining seven tortillas.

Then evenly spread the remaining sauce along with the sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with the leftover cheese.

Bake without covering for 20 minutes, or until golden.

Serve warm with accompanying toppings.
