2 chicken breasts

1 can, drained and rinsed beans

1 cup, frozen or canned corn

6 tortillas

1 cup, shredded cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup salsa

2 tablespoons, chopped cilantro

1, chopped onion

2 cloves, minced garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


In a skillet, heat some oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic, sauté until fragrant. Add diced chicken breasts, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in beans and corn, cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Take a tortilla, spoon some of the chicken and bean mixture onto it, sprinkle with cheese, and roll it up. Place the filled tortilla seam side down in a baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.

Pour salsa over the assembled enchiladas and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden.

4. Finishing the dish and serving

Garnish the hot enchiladas with dollops of sour cream and chopped cilantro. Serve the enchiladas hot, with extra salsa and sour cream on the side. Enjoy your delicious Spicy Chicken and Bean Enchiladas!
