Healthier Chicken Enchiladas

Yesterday I made some homemade tomato sauce (onions & garlic saut'ed on the stove, then I added tomatoes blended in the blender, tomatoes diced and placed in the pan, and I added salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning) and I also had leftover chicken. I decided to make these.

We have been trying to eat extra healthy lately, it just helps us feel so much better. So, I took the ingredients from the original enchiladas and changed it up a bit to make them healthier. 

1/2 can Cream of chicken soup
2 C. tomato sauce
1/2 C. chopped tomatoes
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
Dash of salt & pepper
8-10 whole wheat or whole grain tortillas
2 C. shredded chicken
2 C. rice (to make it healthier you could use brown rice)
1 1/2 C. shredded cheese
1 can black beans

Lightly oil a 9X13 glass baking dish. In a bowl mix the soup, tomato sauce, tomatoes, salt & pepper, and seasoning. Place (hotdog style) a layer of chicken, rice, beans, sauce, and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll up and place in pan. Once you have you're pan full....top with the rest of sauce mixture and cheese. 

Place in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the tortilla are nice and crispy and the cheese is melted.
