    Enchilada Mixture

    Chi Chi Soft Flour Tortillas (Taco size), 12 serving
    Flour Tortilla Burrito Size Herdez - 3 shells cut in half
    Chicken: Tyson Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (about 2 and 1 half cups shredded in food process to make 3 cups)

    Divided and added to Enchilada and Sauce
    Jalapeno Peppers, 2 pepper
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    *Cheese - Great Value Finely Shredded Fiesta Blend, 2 cup


    *Everland Certified Organic Coconut Oil, 3 tbsp
    *Flour, white, 3 Tbs.
    Sour Cream, 1 cup
    Chicken Broth, 2 cup


I added black beans and rice, and southwestern corn as side dishes.

I like spicy which is why two jalapenos. Can also top with black olives, green chilis and or onions if you like.


Pre heat Oven to 350 degrees
Spray a 9x13 Baking dish

Enchilada Mixture:

First I boiled the chicken to cook it well. Then I put it in the food processor to shred making 3 cups added to a large bowl.

while chicken was boiling, I sauteed up 1 cup of the jalapeno/onion mixture in about 1 tbs of coconut oil (there is NO coconut taste) added that to the mixture.

Added 1 cup Fiesta Cheese (I would wait until the chicken and onion/jalapeno mixture cools some)

put about .25 c. of mixture into each shell. Roll the sides over, then from the edge closest to you roll the rest of the shell closed (I ran out of the soft taco shells and could only get the burrito sized shells I cut them in 1/2 and filled the long way, rolling from the short end)

continue until the baking dish is filled


In a large sauce pan melt 3 tbs of coconut oil and then stir in 3 tbs of flour. cook for one min. (I cooked on high)

Add broth and whisk until smooth, heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Stir in sour cream and remaining jalapeno/onion mixture.

DO NOT BRING back to a boil.

Once mixed pour over enchilada's. Then top with remaining cheese. Cover with foil, bake 22 min. Then remove cover and cook (I just baked , you can broil if you want) to brown the cheese. (We didn't want it browned just melted)
