Super Bowl-Simple Chicken Enchiladas

Standard

What better day to sink your teeth into these cheesy enchiladas then Super Bowl Sunday. They will have you saying “Ole”! They’re a non-traditional enchilada loaded with chicken, rice, black beans, cheese, green chiles, cream cheese, and a smooth and creamy sauce!  Without a doubt they’re literally to die for. They’re not a traditional enchilada in any sense but they have a Mexican flare to them.  They aren’t too spicy but if you want to kick the heat up a notch you can add chopped jalapeno to them.

Several years ago a friend of mine introduced me to this enchiladas recipe, her husband made them often.  I have been making them ever since and they’re often requested.   If you know me then you know I can’t follow any recipe exactly, I always have to make it my own. Therefore, I did change the recipe a bit to add my own special touch to the recipe. I highly suggest the black beans and rice over the red beans and rice but you can use either.

These enchiladas do not last in my house when my son gets wind of me making them; he is the first to grab a plate; loading it with toppings.  Another reason I really love these enchiladas is because if I am looking to save time I can make them the day before and reheat them, they actually taste just as delicious on day two. They’re very simple to make and don’t take much time to prepare at all. For a bit of a Mexican flare, top them with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream once they’re plated up.
