IntroductionThese are my cross between enchiladas and burritos - my family loves these!! (They aren't *real* low in calories, but sometimes you gotta splurge!)

4-6 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into bite-size strips (depending on size of breasts)
31 oz. can Refried Beans
10 oz. can Enchilada Sauce
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Chili Powder and Cumin, to taste (I use about 2 Tbsp. or so of each)
8 flour tortillas
Monterey Jack/Cheddar Cheese
While that is cooking, put refried beans into saucepan. I usually add about a 1/4 - 1/2 cup water and about a Tbsp. of cumin. Heat on stovetop.
Once chicken is cooked through, pour about a 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of 13X9 baking dish. Take a tortilla, put about 4 Tbsp of beans on it, then top with about 2 Tbsp of chicken. Roll up and place seam side down in baking dish. Repeat until all of the chicken and tortillas are used. (You won't use all of the beans.) Sprinkle cheese on top.
Put dish in oven, and let cheese melt, about 15-20 minutes. I usually serve ours with the remainder of the refried beans.
Makes 8 servings of 1 enchirito each.
I make this with lean ground beef as well, and it's always a hit!
Number of Servings: 8
