I made these delicious enchiladas using this recipe for the sauce. I made a lot of the enchilada sauce mix and it's so easy to throw it together for a meal that way (Scroll down for the sauce mix recipe and instruction).
|Enchilada topped with fresh Pico de Gallo.|
I added an unusual ingredient to these enchiladas, green cabbage, chopped small. It gave them added moisture (since the cheese is lacking and can't accomplish that) and nutrition and honestly, none of us could taste it in there, even though I put like half a head.
In the bowl of chopped ingredients:
grilled chicken, cut bite-sized
Cabbage cut small
Black and Pinto Beans
Finely chopped red bell pepper.
Coarsely chopped cilantro

|Coating tortillas and layering ingredients.|
You can make the sauce each time you make enchiladas using THIS RECIPE, or you can make some dry sauce mix in advance to help dinner preparation be more speedy.
