Yes, when a 24-hour day is not enough to fit your hectic schedule, you still need to make a budget- friendly family meal.
Total Prep and Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $7.50 (or $1.49 per Enchilada Serving)
1 bag of Corn Tortillas (30 count you only need 5 tortillas) (.70)
1 large can of Mild Enchilada Sauce ($2.00)
2 Rotisserie Chicken Breast ($4.50 whole chicken) (Approx. $2.50 for the breasts only)
1 cup of cooked rice (.50)
1 cup + Shredded Mexican Style Cheese Blend (1.75)
A handful of chives
Cut the Rotisserie chicken breast in small bite-size pieces. See my Rotisserie Chicken prior post: http://www.angieslifehacks.com/cuisine/who-knew-rotisserie-chicken-was-so-worthwhile
Add the cooked rice, chives, sprinkle about ¼ cup of the cheese, about 1 cup of enchilada sauce and mix well. The consistency is not soupy but moist.
Fill the corn tortilla generously and roll to close.
Pour 1/4 c. of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a glass baking dish.
Place the filled tortillas seam down.
After your 5 enchiladas are set in the baking dish, pour the chicken filling leftover on top.
Pour about 1 cup of the sauce on top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with the cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1-15 minutes, until the cheese melts.
