Low Fat Enchiladas

I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe yet! This is one of my fast, easy, pretty healthy favorites!

1 1/2

lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts


tablespoon olive oil


teaspoon cumin


teaspoons minced garlic


onion, chopped


jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped

1 (14

ounce) can fat-free refried beans


whole wheat tortillas

1 (10

ounce) can enchilada sauce


cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil chicken breasts in water for approximately 20 minutes or until done.
  3. Remove, let cool and shred or thinly slice.
  4. Heat oil in skillet and add cumin, garlic, onion and jalapeno; stir-fry for 3 minutes.
  5. Add cooked chicken.
  6. Simmer to warm through.
  7. Fill tortillas with equal portions of refried beans and chicken. Roll up and place in a baking dish large enough to fill all 8 enchiladas.
  8. Pour enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  9. Bake in oven for approximately 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and enchiladas are warmed through.
