(Build Your Own) Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

The whole darn enchilada(s) is in your bag tonight, folks! An assemble it yourself ordeal with ALL the fixins. If you’re saving this spread for later, simply assemble your enchiladas as instructed, top with aluminum foil and pop ‘em in the freezer. When you’re ready to enjoy, you can thaw them in the fridge for 24 hours and then bake as usual! Future you will thank present you later. And if you’re enjoying these tonight… All we gotta say is, we hope you enjoy! <3

Total prep time: 20 minutes

What’s in your bag:

  • Shredded chipotle chicken
  • Torched poblano crema
  • Saffron rice + black beans
  • Flour tortillas
  • Shredded cheddar + Monterey Jack cheeses
  • Tin container to bake your enchiladas in (no lid! You’ll use aluminum foil for that)
  • Churros with chocolate dipping sauce

What you’ll need from home:

  • Aluminum foil
  • Nonstick cooking spray 
  • Nonstick pan
  • Butter or olive oil 
  • Aluminum foil-lined sheet tray
  • Microwave safe bowl 

How to Build Your Enchiladas:

Filling the Tortillas:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Lightly grease your tin container, then set it to the side.
  3. Place a tortilla on a cutting board or plate. Arrange a couple spoonfuls of your chicken in a horizontal line towards the bottom of your tortilla. (Any leftover chicken can be arranged around the enchiladas later!)
  4. Now rollllll it up (leaving the sides open)! 
  5. Grab your tin container and position it horizontally (yenno, the long way!) Place your filled tortilla inside, positioned vertically inside your container. You should have 1 row of 6 enchiladas once they’re all filled up!

Final Steps:

  1. Pour your torched poblano crema ALL OVER your enchiladas, and then sprinkle your cheese over too!
  2. Toss in the oven for 15-20 minutes. We’d recommend checking at 15 minutes to make sure your cheese isn’t getting too toasty 🙂

The Rice + Beans

  1. Grab a nonstick pan and add a little butter or oil. Heat over medium heat.
  2. Scoop the rice + beans into your pan, and stir it around so everything snaps, crackles and pops. Once fragrant and hot, you’re good! Enjoy with your enchiladas 🙂

The Churros

  1. Place your churros on an aluminum foil-lined sheet tray and heat at 350F for 7-10 minutes, or until warmed. 
  2. Heat your chocolate sauce (in a microwave safe bowl) in the microwave for 10 second intervals until nice and warm!

That’s it! Dinner solved, dinner served. #weareWECO
