Healthy Chicken Enchilandas

I love Mexican food so this is my recipe for Healthy Chicken Enchiladas!

1 pound ground chicken
1 small onion
1 green pepper
1 packet taco seasoning
1/4 cup Mexican cheese
1/4 cup taco sauce
salsa (optional)
1 tablespoon reduced fat sour cream

Cook ground chicken in a pan without oil. After it has cooked drain excess water. Then add onion, green pepper, and taco seasoning. Cook that for about 10 minutes or until you notice the green pepper has softened.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Then take whole wheat tortilla and put in the meat you just cooked with a couple strands of the cheese. Fold this over and put in a glass dish. Do the same for about however many you can fit into the pan. If it is a 9 by 9 pan you can fit about 3 in there.  A bigger lasagna type dish can fit more.  Add the taco sauce on top of the filled tortillas. Then on top of that add the cheese.   Since I was just making it for myself I made two.

Bake this for about 15-20 min or whenever you see the cheese is melted. You do not want to heat it for too long or the tortillas will dry up.

I always add a salad with my meals. So this is a picture of the dinner I had tonight!!!!
Try this recipe and ENJOY!!!!!!
