Stacked Enchiladas

I make crock pot chicken pretty regularly and am always looking for new things to do with all this lovely organic chicken. Last week Enchiladas tickled my fancy so I set out to make a batch as clean as I possibly could all the while looking for that flavor that would satisfy my craving for Mexican food. I find myself returning to GimmeSomeOven often for simple fast and delicious recipes. I really like Ali’s style. I swap out her ingredients for more organic choices and everything turns out delicious. I specifically liked her stacked twist because it makes the whole assembly easy as can be.

I found her Stacked Enchiladas on Pinterest and they were easy to assemble and a big hit in my household. I used Organic; tortillas, corn, black beans, chicken, cheese and scallions. Note here, Organic corn tortillas are not easy to find, you will have to go to a market like Whole Foods. The original sauce recipe called for oil, that didn’t sound right to me, so I found a different sauce and it turned out delicious, I’m not even sure I want to deviate from it. Here’s the recipe for the sauce:

  • 1 24oz Jar of Organic Strained Tomatoes
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes
  • 24oz of Water
  • 3 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 3 Tbsp Taco Seasoning (I made my own)
  • 1/2 Organic Onion
  • 4 cloves Organic Garlic
  • 1 Organic Jalapeño seeds and ribs removed
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Stacked Enchiladas OverheadBlend everything in a high powered blender or food processor.

Simmer over medium heat

Use immediately or store freeze for future use.

For the casserole I followed Ali’s recipe using the Organic ingredients noted before and the sauce above. A recipe that will get used regularly in my kitchen.
