(RECIPE included, below) This is a sponsored post. All my opinions are my own. I was so excited when La Tortilla Factory contacted me and asked if I would create a recipe for their website. Just so you all know, I’d never agree to do this and share the recipe I created with you, unless I really liked their products. And, I LOVE their tortillas! Be sure to scroll down to get my NEW Chicken Enchilada Skillet recipe!

La Tortilla Factory’s line of tortillas are fantastic!!! They were founded in 1977 by Jose and Mary Tamayo. As tortilla pioneers, in 1991 La Tortilla Factory introduced the first fat free flour tortillas (in the world) and, five years later, the first low carb/low fat tortillas. They were the first to bring gluten free tortillas, extra virgin olive oil wraps, and fiber and flax corn tortillas to the market. With all these choices, they claearly have a yummy tortilla to meet any diet!

SkinnyFabulous Chicken Enchilada Skillet

The wonderful flavors of an enchilada made quickly in this one pan wonder! Torn tortillas are used and not just any tortillas. I used a wonderful organic corn and wheat blend from La Tortilla Factory. These are extra soft and flavorful. Much better than typical corn tortillas. Each super hearty, fiber rich serving has 380 calories, 9 grams of fat and 9 Weight Watchers SmartPointsDinner on the table in 35 minutes and absolutely delicious!

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients for Enchilada:

1½ cups onions, diced 

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 pound chicken breasts (boneless, skinless) diced into small pieces

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

8 (2 packages) La Tortilla Factory’s organic white corn tortillas,  cut or torn into bite-size pieces, see shopping tips below

½ teaspoon cumin

1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained

1 can (10 oz each) red enchilada sauce (mild or medium)

1 can (8 oz each) tomato sauce


Ingredients for Topping:

1 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

1¼ cup grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped

1¼ cup romaine lettuce, shredded

5 tablespoons fat-free sour cream or fat free plain yogurt, optional


Instructions

1. In a microwave safe bowl or plate, add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes to soften.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Any leftover enchilada mixture freezes great.

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


Shopping Tips
La Tortilla Factory products are distributed nationwide at most major retailers and many independent grocery stores as well. Every retailer stocks their tortillas differently, so if you don’t find them in “the normal spot,” please check for them in the ethnic aisle, deli/bakery department and for gluten free friends, the gluten free aisle.
I found a wonderful selection at my local Vons/Safeway.
Be sure to check out La Tortilla Factory’s website for their complete product line and where you can buy them. http://www.latortillafactory.com/products/
