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.

    My mom used to make this when I was growing up and I make it for my family. I don't know where she found this recipe.
