Mexican food is always a hit at the dinner table. Do you like things a little more on the spicy side? Use medium or hot enchilada sauce instead of the mild and add another jalapeno to the chicken mixture.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Canadian Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 1 can mild enchilada sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 1 green pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper diced (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each dried cumin and coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 8 flour tortillas

Method

In bowl, mix together Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses; set aside. In separate bowl, stir tomatoes with enchilada sauce; set aside.

In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, stirring often, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Remove to plate.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion, red pepper, jalapeno pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in chicken and any juices and one-third of the sauce mixture.

Divide chicken mixture and half of the cheese mixture among tortillas; roll up each.

Spread one-third of the remaining sauce mixture in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Arrange rolls, seam side down, in dish; top with remaining sauce and cheese mixtures. Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
