Barbecue Chicken Enchiladas

Makes: 4 servings

Description: My kids don't like spicy foods yet but I love enchiladas. I also shy away from preservatives so I love that this recipe is possible without using any. I used Fresh Direct spice rub and Dinosaur BBQ sauce but feel free to swap in your own favorites.

1 lb  boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
2 tbsp  FreshDirect Everything Rub or spice mix of your choice
2 tbsp  vegetable oil
12  corn tortillas
28 oz  canned crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup  Dinosaur Honey Garlic BBQ sauce
1 cup  grated monterey jack cheese

Instructions: Heat vegetable oil in a skillet. Add chicken pieces and spice rub and saute with medium heat until chicken is cooked through.

In a medium saucepan, mix together crushed tomatoes and bbq sauce. Cover saucepan and let simmer under medium low heat for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Transfer 1/3 of the sauce to a baking dish, enough to well coat the bottom of the dish.

Heat each corn tortilla in a skillet until they are flexible enough to roll.

Assemble enchiladas by placing chicken mixture in a corn tortilla, rolling it and placing it in the baking dish. Cover enchiladas with the remaining sauce and the grated cheese.

Bake for 30 minutes and serve.
