Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Spinach and Chicken Enchiladas

2018年8月8日

I love enchiladas.  While they’re usually loaded with cheese, I’ve given up on the cheesy, oozy version years ago, making way for veggie-licious versions.

When I’m cooking, I tend to reach for whatever veggies I have on hand.  I tend to buy the same veggies weekly – – spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions.  These staples allow me to add to just about any dish I’m making for the week.  Today, I was out of bell peppers (which I typically love to include in my enchiladas), but I had plenty of other options to use, which you see below.

The sauce for these enchiladas REALLY make the dish.  I leaned on a recipe from Skinnytaste that I’d tried years ago.  You guys are going to love this one.  With just a few simple ingredients, this sauce comes together quickly, and you’re never going to want to go back to jarred sauce again.

For the Sauce

cooking spray

1 tsp. minced garlic

3/4 cup tomato sauce

1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp. chicken broth

1/2 Tbsp. canned chipotle pepper, minced

1/4 tsp. chipotle chile powder

1/4. tsp. ground cumin

1/8 tsp. coarse salt

pepper to taste

dash of cayenne, if desired

For the Enchiladas

1 package Jenny Craig Chicken Street Tacos

2 cups spinach, raw

1/4 cup red onion, sliced

1/2 roma tomato, sliced

salt and pepper

cooking spray

garnish: diced tomato, jalapeno, onion

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Add garlic to a small saucepan, sprayed with cooking spray.  Saute for about 1 minute, until fragrant.  Add remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce to low and to a simmer for 7-8 minutes.

3.  In a small skillet prepared with cooking spray, add onions and spinach heating to medium heat.  Add salt and pepper to the spinach, which will allow it to wilt.  Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often until the spinach is done.  Add sliced tomato for the last minute.

4.  Cook your chicken tacos in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Move filling to a small bowl, separating out the filling from the tortillas.  Add 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce and veggie mixture to the bowl and stir to combine.
