Ingredients

Ingredients for Enchilada:

  • cups onions, diced 
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (boneless, skinless) diced into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 8 corn tortillas, cut or torn into bite-size pieces (I used La Tortilla Factory’s organic white corn tortillas or use your favorite)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 can (10 oz.) Ro*Tel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
  • 1 can (10 oz.) red enchilada sauce, mild or medium (for gluten-free use La Victoria)
  • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce

Ingredients for Topping:

  • 1 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • cup grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • cup romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 5 tablespoons fat-free sour cream or fat free plain yogurt, optional

Instructions

  • In a microwave safe bowl or plate, add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes to soften.
  • Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil and heat in pan. Add chicken, garlic and cooked onions. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often until chicken is completely white. Use a spatula to keep turning over while cooking. Stir in 8 tortillas, torn or cut into pieces and cumin. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes, until tortillas are soft. Stir often.
  • Pour undrained tomatoes, enchilada sauce and tomato sauce over chicken/tortilla mixture. Mix well. Cover pan and continue to cook over low heat, about 5 minutes.
  • To serve: add about 1½ cups of enchilada mixture to each bowl. Top each with 3 tablespoons cheese. Mix in a bit to melt. Top cheese with ¼ cup tomatoes and ¼ cup lettuce. Finally, top with 1 tablespoon sour cream or yogurt, if desired. Repeat with each serving.
  • Any leftover enchilada mixture freezes great.

Notes

Makes 5 servings. Each serving, ~ 1½ cups, including toppings (but not optional sour cream or yogurt)

Shopping Tips
La Tortilla Factory tortillas can be found in most supermarkets in the tortilla section. I bought mine at Vons/Safeway. Or use your favorite corn tortillas.
