Skinny Chicken Enchiladas

Allow me to introduce you to my new favorite go to meal – Skinny Chicken Enchiladas! These are so tasty and easy!

Best part:1 enchilada only has 150 calories and 7 grams of fat! (for comparison, a regular chicken enchilada has around 320 calories and 13 grams of fat…) 

Ingredients:

Makes 8 Enchiladas

8  8-inch whole wheat tortillas

Enchilada Filling

  • 2.5 cups of cooked chicken breast, shredded (4-6 chicken breasts)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 whole green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt (plain)
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheese

Enchilada Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Salsa (I prefer the Mango Peach Salsa from Costco)
  • 1/4 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt (plain)

Additional ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Salsa (to place on the bottom of the dish)
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat shredded cheese (to sprinkle on top of enchiladas before placing in the oven)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a  9x 13 pan with cooking spray
  3. Sautee onion and green pepper until onions are lightly brown
  4. In a large bowl, prepare the enchilada filling. Mix together cooked chicken breast, greek yogurt, onion, green pepper, cumin, and cheese
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of salsa on the bottom of the pan.
  6. Place 1/4 cup of enchilada filling mixture in the center of each tortilla and wrap to create your enchilada. Place each enchilada in the pan with seam facing down.
  7. Create the enchilada sauce by mixing together the 3/4 cup of salsa and 1/4 greek yogurt.
  8. Pour the sauce on top of the enchiladas
  9. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the enchiladas.
