Number of Servings: 8


    Great Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 3 tbsp
    Great Value Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, 1.5 lbs
    Cumin, 2 tsp
    Garlic Powder, 2 tsp
    Chili Powder, 1 tsp
    Red/Purple Onion, diced, 1
    Great Value Minced Garlic, 2 tsp
    Great Value All Natural No Salt Added Corn, 1 can
    Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, 2 (or to taste)
    Great Value Chopped Green Chiles, 7 oz.
    Great Value All Natural Diced Tomatoes, 1 can
    Great Value Tomato Puree, 1.5 small cans


Grill or broil chicken. Remove chicken to a platter, allow to cool.

Saute onion and garlic in chicken drippings until tender. Add corn and chiles. Stir well to combine. Add canned tomatoes, saute 1 minute.

Pull chicken breasts apart by hand into shredded strips. Add shredded chicken to saute pan, combine with vegetables. Sprinkle chicken/vegetable mixture with cumin, garlic powder and Mexican spices before turning.

Microwave tortillas on high for 30 seconds. This softens them and makes them more pliable. Coat the bottom of 2 (13 by 9-inch) pans with a ladle of tomato puree or low-sodium enchilada sauce. Spoon 1/4 cup chicken mixture in each tortilla. Fold over filling, making 8 enchiladas with the seam side down. Top with enchilada sauce and cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven until cheese melts.

Optional: Garnish with cilantro, scallion, sour cream and chopped tomatoes before serving. Serve with Spanish rice and beans.
