3 bean and chicken enchiladas

3 bean and chicken enchiladas

inspired by pinterest

this is another recipe that i saw on pinterest and tweaked it a little bit based on the ingredients i had!


8 corn tortillas

1 cup (about 4 strips) of cooked shredded chicken

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can of bean medley (the can i had on hand had kidney beans, pinto beans and black beans)

1/2 can garbonzo beans

1/4 cup chopped red onion

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp adobo sauce (optional – i just had an open can of this on hand so i threw it in)

1 cup enchilada sauce or picante sauce

1 cup monterey jack cheese

salt and pepper

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  place all beans in a strainer and rinse.  add to a large mixing bowl.  add chicken, cream of chicken soup, onion, lime juice, adobo sauce, salt and pepper to bean mixture and mix together.


scoop 1 large spoon full of mixture into corn tortillas and roll up.


pour enchilada sauce (or picante sauce) on the bottom of a baking dish to prevent enchiladas from sticking.  place each rolled enchilada seam side down so they don’t unravel.


top with cheese.


cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.


enjoy this easy semi healthy meal!
