    Chef Jean Louise's Note:

    This is a spiced-up version of a recipe I found in a recent issue of *Cooking for 2*. It's a great way to make use of leftover chicken or holiday turkey.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat, add onion and bell pepper and saute until they just begin to brown, remove from heat and set aside.
    3. 3
      In a blender or food processor, combine the canned tomatoes, chipotle pepper, garlic, tomato paste and corn meal, blend or process on high speed until smooth and then pour the red sauce into a shallow mixing bowl that's at least six or seven inches in diameter.
    4. 4
      In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine soup and sour cream.
    5. 5
      Spread 1/2 of the soup and sour cream mixture over the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
    6. 6
      Taking one corn tortilla, dip it into the red sauce to coat both sides, then place about one tbs. of the cheese and 1/3 cup of the chicken in the center of the tortilla, roll it up and place it in the bottom of the baking dish, continue until you have a single layer of enchiladas covering the bottom of the dish (I was able to fit in ten enchiladas, eight placed side by side vertically with two more placed horizontally at the top of the dish).
    7. 7
      If you have any red sauce left over, pour it over the enchiladas, and distribute any remaining chicken over the top.
    8. 8
      Spread the other 1/2 of the soup and sour cream mixture over the top of everything.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and the onion and bell pepper.
    10. 10
      Bake in the center of the oven for 20-25 minutes until bubbly and heated through.

      I enjoyed this more the day after when all the flavors just blended together. I added the whole chipotle. Might try this again and use a little more chipotle in the red sauce. Made for PAC Spring 2008.

      Loved your spiced up version - having made a turkey last week the timing was perfect! Other then having to improvise a little with the chipotle chili made as posted and loved the end result. I scaled the recipe in half - won't be doing that next time around as I am sure any extras would freeze well and would be perfect to have on hand when needing a quick lunch. Thank you Jean Louise, this was a wonderful PAC find!
