Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas with Rice!

So my good friend gave me the best recipe ever to my favorite food! I forgot to take a picture with the food plated...I was too hungry! We all just dug right in. You get the jist of it though. I was starving when I was preparing it so I thought we needed WAY more food than we actually did. This meal is very very filling. I have a pretty big appetite but I can only eat about 2 enchiladas and a small portion of the rice.

Ingredients for the Enchiladas
2 large boneless chicken breast
Corn Tortillas
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans
1 large bag of a mexican mix of shredded cheese
1 large block of Velveta style Cheese with Queso, I used one our local grocery store has called Queso Blanco
vegetable oil

The Enchilada Sauce:
2 packets of powder enchilada mix
3 cups water
a couple tablespoons of sugar
2 8 oz cans of tomato sauce
(basically everything thats on the back of the packet just follow those instructions but add sugar)

I boiled the chicken breast for about 30 min, then put in my blender and shredded small amounts at a time.
Drained the cans of corn and beans. Mixed them together in a bowl.
Prepared the enchilada sauce in a medium size sauce pan. In a larger frying pan I put a good amount of oil and let it get hot, then dipped the corn tortilla in it just for a couple seconds to soften it up then dip it in the enchilada sauce then put it in the baking dish. I had my shredded cheese, corn and beans, and chicken ready to go, start adding that small, very small amounts to the tortilla wrap it up and lay it vertically in a baking dish. Continue till youve made all you want :) We made WAY too many. 30 for just 4 people. We'll have leftovers for days! Once you finish wrapping them all up pour the remaining sauce over the top of your enchiladas. Take you block of cheese with the queso in it, and break it up over the enchiladas. Have your oven preheated to 350 and cook uncovered for about 30 min. Your mainly letting the cheese melt. So make sure your chicken is cooked during the boiling process.

One thing I left out is the fact that you need to season your chicken. Once youve cooked and shredded it add salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

The Rice..
Jasmine Rice
8oz tomato sauce
1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
2 Cups water
Garlic Powder

I put all of the above ingredients in my rice cooker mixed it up and let it cook. Once it was done I tasted it and added more garlic powder if it needed it. So you will know what taste good to you. Thats it!! Its delicious and so so filling
