Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Boil a kettle, then heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chicken breastground cumin and dried oregano with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 2 min on each side or until browned

Once browned, add 200ml [400ml] boiled water, cover, and cook for 8-10 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!)

2 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Once the chicken is cooked transfer to a clean board and shred it apart, using two forks

Pour the liquid from the pan into a jug, and add enough boiled water to make it 500ml [800ml] – this is your chicken broth

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the red onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

 

3 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Re-heat the wide-based pan over a medium heat and add 30g [60g] butter to melt 

Add the sliced red onion and chopped garlic with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 min or until softened

Once softened, add 15g [30g] plain flour and the cayenne pepper and stir with a wooden spoon for 3-4 min or until a sandy paste forms – this is your roux 

4 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Turn the heat down to low and stir in the chipotle and tomato paste to the roux 

Crumble in the chicken stock cube[s] and gradually whisk in the chicken broth, a little at a time, and cook for 5 min (stirring occasionally) or until a smooth, thick sauce remains

Season with a pinch of salt and black pepper – this is your chipotle sauce

Meanwhile, drain and rinse the black beans 

5 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Remove 1/3 of the chipotle sauce to a small saucepan – this is your enchilada topping

Add the black beans and shredded chicken to the remaining sauce in the pan and stir well – this is your chicken and black bean filling

6 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Re-heat the enchilada topping on a high heat for 2-3 min or until the sauce has thickened to a double cream consistency, whisking regularly 

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese

Slice the spring onion finely, then slice the red chilli finely

Grease an oven-proof dish with a little vegetable oil

7 Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Divide the chicken and black bean filling between the tortillas

Roll each tortilla up and place them in the oven-proof dish

Top with the enchilada topping, grated cheese, a generous pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil

Put the dish in the oven for 12-15 min or until the tortillas are crispy and the cheese has melted
