Enchiladas

    Description

    This receipe is easy to make and wonderfully tasty.

    Method

    1. Slice the chicken breasts into slivers and fry in some oil.
    2. Once gently browned, add the onion and soften in the pan (add a little more oil if the onion starts to burn).
    3. Add the peppers and then add the fajita mix (1 packet of this is enough for 4 people, halve for 2) and stir in to coat all the meat and vegetables. Allow to sear slightly.
    4. Add the time of tomatoes and mix in thoroughly then simmer to reduce and make a sauce (maybe 15-20 mins).
    5. When the sauce is nearly ready heat the skillet on high and warm each tortilla on both sides and then place to the side on a plate.
    6. When sauce is ready spoon the sauce into the middle of each tortilla wrap, place a handful of grate cheese, a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of lime juice. Then roll each wrap up and place side by side on the shallow dish.
    7. Once all wraps are on the dish, smother with more sour cream and then cover with a generous handful of grated cheese.
    8. Place the dish under a hot grill until the cheese has melted and lightly browned.
    9. Serve with a salad of your choice.

    Tips

    Instead of using a skillet to heat the tortillas you could microwave them. Also instead of grilling the final dish you could bake in the oven for 15 mins (or until browned) although this gives a slightly richer flavour. Personally I prefer the grilled version. For a veggie version substitute your fav veg instead of the chicken.

      I wonder if one can make the fajita mix at home: what are the spices in it?

      Delicious but I would use two tins of tomatoes instead of one to give it a bit more sauce.

    Chicken Enchiladas

      Method

      1. 1. First, brown chicken in a large pan until almost cooked through.
      2. 2. Add the sliced onions, peppers and mushrooms to the pan and cook on medium heat until veg starts to soften.
      3. 3. In a separate pot, heat passata and spices together. Once vegetables are cooked add enough of the sauce to coat the vegetables and chicken. Leave the rest of the passata mix in the pot on very low heat.
      4. 4. Heat the passata, chicken and vegetables slighty and then spoon the mix into the 6 tortilla wraps. Fold each wrap over and place in a large roasting tray.
      5. 5. Pour the rest of the passata mix over the top of your filled tortillas. Sprinkle cheese over sauce and place in a preheated oven and bake until cheese is browned. (You could also grill on med/high heat).

        You can get wholemeal tortilla wraps nowadays and I like to make fajitas with them and feel less guilty! Nice recipe.
