  • cooking spray

  • ¼ cup chicken broth

  • 16 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 red pepper - stemmed, seeded, and diced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup canned corn kernels

  • ¼ cup packed chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles

  • 2 ¼ cups grated low-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

  • cup fat-free sour cream

  • hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 8 Mission Soft Taco Flour Tortillas

  • cup enchilada sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 8x11x2-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Pour chicken broth into a small frying pan and bring to a simmer. Add chicken, cover, and simmer until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes, flipping halfway through. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the pan and let cool.

  3. In the same frying pan, add onion and red pepper. Sauté over medium heat until soft, approximately 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  4. Shred cooled chicken and place into a large bowl. Add onion mixture, black beans, corn, cilantro, and chiles. Stir in 2 cups Cheddar and sour cream until thoroughly blended. Add Tabasco, salt, and pepper.

  5. Place 1/8 of the mixture into center of each tortilla. Roll tortillas and place into the prepared baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce bubbles and enchiladas are heated through, about 35 minutes.
