It is one of my all-time favorite creations and my whole family enjoys eating it. Finding hearty, filling, and low-point W/W recipes is sometimes hard, but this one is a keeper for sure! This is very delicious !
8 SERVINGS19 oz. enchilada sauce (canned)9 corn tortillas (extra thin yellow)16 oz. fat-free refried beans1 packet taco seasoning (or the equivalent of homemade taco seasoning)1 1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (COOKED and chopped into small pieces)1 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies (drained)1 cup cheese (2 shredded fiesta)
Making this W/W Chicken Enchilada Bake won’t take long. You can even put the casserole together in the morning and leave it covered in the refrigerator until dinner time. Then take it out and bake!
STEP ONE: SEASON REFRIED BEANS
Start off by preheating the oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine the fat-free refried beans and the taco seasoning. Set aside for a few minutes.
STEP TWO: ADD TORTILLAS TO PAN
Spray a glass 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour about 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread the sauce around so it lightly covers the bottom of the baking dish.
Arrange 4.5 tortillas across the bottom of the pan to cover it as evenly as possible. I cut two tortillas in half so the entire bottom of the pan is covered. There will be one 1/2 tortilla left over that you will use later. The picture below shows you how to place the corn tortillas.
STEP THREE: ADD REFRIED BEANS
Now spread the seasoned bean mixture evenly on top of the corn tortillas.
STEP FOUR: COMBINE FILLING INGREDIENTS
I like to grab the bowl I used to mix the refried beans…this saves some dirty bowls! Add the cooked chicken, drained black beans, drained Ro-Tel, and the remaining enchilada sauce to the bowl.
Stir these ingredients together.
STEP FIVE: LAYER FILLING
Now spoon half of this filling mixture on top of the refried bean layer.
Place the remaining 4.5 tortillas on top of the mixture.
Spoon the remaining filling mixture on top of the last layer of corn tortillas and spread it out evenly.
STEP SIX: BAKE
Place the baking dish into the preheated oven, uncovered, and bake for 30 minutes or until the casserole is cooked through and the cheese is nice and melty on top!
