The other night for dinner here in Colorado, my mom fixed one of our favorites, an original dish she created called Santa Fe Enchiladas. The recipe was inspired by a meal she and my dad had on an anniversary trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. These enchiladas are so yummy that I had to share--I love Mexican food, and I'm always up for a dish that requires only five ingredients!
My husband and I don't even use utensils when we have this--we serve it up with tortilla chips--delish!
Santa Fe Enchiladas
1 can green enchilada sauce (numerous brands are available--my mom prefers Hatch; in Iowa, we purchase Old El Paso or Las Palmas)
1 can black beans
2 c. cooked, chopped chicken
a dozen corn tortillas
1 1/2-2 c. shredded cheddar or colby jack
Preheat oven to 375. In a greased 9x13 pan, pour and spread some of the sauce in the bottom. Layer several tortillas across sauce. Cover tortillas with a scoop of beans and half the chicken and cheese. Then pour on the rest of the sauce and repeat layers: tortillas, beans, chicken, cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
