Chicken enchiladas lightened up with grilled chicken, whole wheat tortillas and a broth-y chipotle sauce that is to die for!
Lightly spray the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish and set aside. Preheat your oven to 400 F.
In a large skillet over medium heat add the two tablespoons of olive oil.
Add diced onion and peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and the peppers are soft, about 5 minutes.
Add in the minced garlic and cook for one minute. Add in the flour, cumin and the tablespoon of diced chipotle peppers, stir.
Whisk in the broth and water. Add in the tablespoon of adobo sauce if desired and simmer over medium heat until the sauce has thickened. Season with 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, taste and adjust seasonings.
Put the shredded grilled chicken in a bowl. Add a cup of the “enchilada sauce” to the shredded chicken.
Measure and spread 1/4 of a cup of the sauce in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Wrap the 8 whole wheat tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for one minute.
Spoon a little of the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla, then tuck and roll each tortilla and place it seam side down into the baking dish.
Pour and spread the remainder of the sauce over top of the enchiladas and top with the half cup of grated Muenster cheese.
Bake, uncovered, in your preheated 400 F oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and bubbly.
Serve two per person topped with a dollop of sour cream, your favorite hot sauce and torn cilantro. Other delicious toppings like sliced olives, salsa, green onions and pickled jalapenos would be fantastic too!
