My Not-So-Authentic-but-Still-Delicious-Enchilada Recipe

Hello friends! I love Mexican flavors and I like to create my own recipes with these flavors. This isn't very authentic, but it is very delicious! It's always a hit my family!

You will need:
3 chicken breasts
1 Onion
1 Bell Pepper (I had green on hand)
1 Serrano Chili
1 can of tomato sauce (you only need the tiny can)
1 jar of taco sauce
1 can of red enchilada sauce
1 pack taco seasoning
Shredded Cheese

First, season the chicken with the taco seasoning (both sides) and then bake it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. (you can do this the day before and store it in the refrigerator for quick assembly. 

Next, chop up your peppers and onion. Heat a pan with just enough oil to coat the bottom. Once the pan is warm add the peppers and onions. Cook them until they start to get soft.

While the veggies are cooking, chop up your chicken into cubes. One the veggies have started to soften add you chicken to the pan! 

When the chicken has heated through, add just enough of the taco sauce to coat the veggies and chicken. When the sauce gets warmed through you are ready to fill your tortillas.

Scoop some of the meat and veggies mixture and put it in the center of your tortilla. 

Top with some of the shredded cheese.

Fold over each side.

The fold down the top and bottom edge.

Place seam side down into a GREASED or SPRAYED baking dish. 

Repeat the filling until you've filled all of your shells or filled up your pan.

Top the filled tortillas with the can of enchilada sauce, the tomato sauce and the rest of the taco sauce.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Top with the rest of your shredded cheese and bake for another five minutes and then it's ready to serve!
