1/1 Photo of Chicken & Black Bean Enchiladas
This is a recipe I've been perfecting for a while and I think I've reached nirvana. I crave these at least once a week and even though the instructions appear lengthy, it really is a simple dish to prepare and well worth the effort. Hubby has told me that if I ever open a restuarant that these should be on the menu, as they are far better than any enchiladas we've ever had dining out. And for those of you who claim to not like cilantro, please give this a try. If you didn't know better, you wouldn't know it had cilantro in it. The taste is just a hint of freshness when combined with everything else. Cooking the chicken in it's own little soup bath really gives it a nice subtle flavor too. I suppose if you were pressed for time, you could use a rotisserie chicken. I've also used other cheeses than monterey jack, but find that the jack is the best flavor combination. I have to admit, that most of the measurements are my best guess - feel free to use a little more or little less of any of the enchilada fillings, but I think what I've listed is pretty close to what I do. Also, if you prefer your sauce with a little heat to it, you could add in a little cayenne, but don't do to much and cover up all the other lovely flavors. I serve these with beans and rice on the side, and a little dollop of sour cream on the top. I have to admit, I'm pretty proud of this dish and hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
