This recipe turned into born out of our cheesy bird and black bean enchilada recipe. considering the fact that I’m now not a bean lover, I dabbled with the recipe. It developed right into a delicious mixture of Mexican flavored chook and veggies wrapped up in tacky tortilla this is baked to make a flavorful dinner that our complete family loves.
prepare dinner up a few chicken. you could do that any manner you are relaxed with. Bake it, boil it or sauté it. on occasion I even use leftover roasted bird. anything makes you glad.
while making the recipe this precise time, I diced up some chicken breast and sautéed it in a few olive oil and a little garlic salt.
meanwhile, get some of your veggies sautéing as properly. heat up a few olive oil. upload your diced up onions and minced garlic and permit it cook a bit. Then upload in your bell peppers and corn. Sauté those until they begin to get a tad soft.
another confession—I went a little overboard with the corn on this recipe. instead of the use of a can of corn, I cut a few off a bunch of leftover grilled corn at the cob. i finished up with greater than a notion!
