1 Tbsp olive oil
500g Tegel Lean & Lite Skinless Breast Fillets, sliced thinly
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 400g can Mexican tomatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tomato puree
12 corn or flour tortillas
1 cup grated tasty cheese

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken and brown over medium heat. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add the onion, garlic and green pepper to the pan and cook over medium heat until the onion is soft. Add the ground cumin and cook for a further minute. Add the Mexican tomatoes, water and tomato puree and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Place half of the tomato mixture into a bowl and set aside. Add the chicken to the pan and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked. Spread some of the reserved sauce onto each tortilla then place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture on one end. Roll up and place in a lightly greased oven proof dish. Pour the remaining sauce on the top of the enchiladas then
sprinkle with the grated cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or
until the top is golden and the enchiladas are heated through.
