Chicken Enchiladas


  • chicken breasts
  • 4 tortillas
  • Red onion
  • Red pepper
  • 1/2 can of corn
  • A can of red beans
  • Chilli pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 300 g yellow cheese
  • Lime
  • Tomatoes in can
  • Sweet pepper powder
  • Cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, sugar
  • olive oil


  • Natural yogurt
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Oregano
  • Parsley

To prepare enchiladas, we will need a deep pan. Wash the chicken breasts and cut them into strips. Season with salt and pepper, then fry in olive oil. We remove the chicken from the pan, where we now fry the chopped onion and squeezed clove of garlic. Season with sweet, powdered paprika, coriander and cumin.

One small pepper chopped finely. Let’s do it with gloves or wash your hands thoroughly after throwing it into the pan.

The red beans should be drained and washed. We put the contents of one can, half a can of corn and finely chopped red pepper into the pan. Fry for a while, stirring well.

Put the chicken back in the pan and add the canned tomatoes together with the sauce. Season with a little sugar. Put a handful of grated yellow cheese into the pan and mix well. Then simmer covered for about 15 minutes. Fill tortillas for our enchiladas with ready stuffing. The Mexican recipe suggests rolling the filled tortillas into a roll and stacking them side by side on the bottom of a greased olive oilproof dish. We sprinkle them with grated cheese, pour sauce and sprinkle with cheese again.

We set the oven to 180 degrees. We put the enchiladas in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Serve them with garlic sauce prepared on the basis of natural yogurt and 4 cloves of garlic.
