I wanted to make something Mexican for Cinco De Mayo but couldnt come up with something JUST right....so I made my own cross of Chicken and Rice Burritos and Chipotle Enchiladas....Pair with a Side Salad with a light cumin spiced vinaigrette(not pictured).
They were GREAT!!!! And Not-Fried, Fried Ice Cream with Blueberry sauce for dessert!
Chipotle Chicken Enchirritos....
1TB olive oil
1/2 c chopped green onions
1 clove minced garlic
3 chicken breasts, boiled in water seasoned with 2 tsp chipotle powder(or 2 chipotle bullion cubes if you have it!) and 1/2 tsp garlic, cooled and shredded.
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
2 tsp chili powder(or more to taste)
1/2 c picante sauce
1/4 c chicken broth
1 tsp garlic salt
1 c COOKED rice (preferably in chicken broth)
Heat oil in large pan over medium heat, saute onions and garlic until tender,add in chicken, beans,picante sauce, chili powder, garlic salt and broth, cook until heated, add in cooked rice.
1 TB Olive oil
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can green chilies
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1-2 TB chipotle powder(depending on how spicy!)
1/4 c chopped cilantro
juice of 1 lime (about 2 TB)
Heat olive oil over medium heat, sautee onions until translucent, add in garlic and saute a few moments more. Stir in toms, chilies, and spices. Remove from heat and stir in chopped cilantro and lime juice,
I run my immersion blender through it to break up chunks, we like a SMOOTH sauce.
8- 8 inch flour Tortillas (HOMEMADE IS GREAT!!!link to a great tortilla recipe )
Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray
Place about 1/2 cup chicken mixture on each tortilla, top with a little (or alot!) of shredded colby jack cheese
Roll tortillas, place seam side down in prepared pan.
Cover in foil and bake until heated through...
Top with Sauce and a sprinkle of cheese and ENJOY!!
Alternately you COULD put about 1/2 cup sauce on the bottom of the pan, put the burritos on top, top with the sauce and some cheese and bake it from there.... I am not 100% sure if the flour tortillas would get soggy though and my kids dont like too much spice/sauce so I did it separately for this first go round
