From Nice Gut to Nice Butt

Do you remember the reference???

I confess I didn't make it to Boot Camp last night and I know that's not good, it's just that I love naps. BUT, I did go for a 1 mile walk in a very hilly neighborhood so I'm doin alright. I also stayed on track food wise yesterday so I can stamp the day as a swell one.

Slimmer Trimmer Chicken Enchiladas

This dish was inspired by a recipe I got off Pinterest(where else?) from The Larson Lingo which is full of delicious recipes. The original recipe is for the crock pot and it is delicious! I figured it would be a great filling for some sort of Mexican casserole concoction. 

3 Chicken breasts
1 package of fat free cream cheese**
1 can black beans
1 can Rotel
5 Whole Wheat Tortillas
1 packet low sodium taco seasoning mix
Fat Free shredded cheese (I used cheddar)

**if I could change anything I probably would have used Neufch√Ętel it has a richer taste and still pretty healthy.

  • Dice up chicken breast however you like
  • Place chicken in a large skillet sprayed with cooking oil and cook chicken until done (I added a little chicken stock to ensure the chicken wasn't dry)
  • When the chicken is done cooking, reduce heat
  • Add the cream cheese, Rotel, and taco seasoning
  • Drain the black beans and rinse them with cold water, remove as much excess water as you can
  • Add the black beans in with other ingredients
  • Mix everything together ensuring the cream cheese gets melted
  • Cook on low for 5 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Divide mixture evenly onto each tortilla and roll up, place folded side down into a casserole dish sprayed with cooking oil.
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted**
**Fat free cheese does not melt near as well as the not fat free kind, just ya know FYI:)

All in all I thought this tasted pretty good for being a lightened up version, I used Hot Rotel because that's what I had so it ended up being pretty dang spicy.

 This little crazy tried to snag a bite....
Little stinker:)
