Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 10 oz total)
  • 8 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch)
  • 2 cans (10 oz each) Old El Paso™ red enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican four-cheese blend (8 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 12x8-inch (2-quart) baking dish with foil.
  • 2
    Fill 4-quart pot three-fourths full with water. Add 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 10 oz total). Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to simmer; cover and cook 15 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
  • 3
    Meanwhile, lightly fold 8 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch) in half and place folded-side-down in dish; set aside. Place 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ red enchilada sauce, 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans and 1 cup of the shredded Mexican four-cheese blend in large bowl. Shred cooked chicken. Add chicken to bowl with beans; stir with large spoon to combine.
  • 4
    Divide chicken mixture evenly among tortillas; wrap tortillas around filling and place seam side down.
  • 5
    Pour remaining 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ red enchilada sauce evenly over top. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup shredded Mexican four-cheese blend.
  • 6
    Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To make this even faster and easier, use pre-cooked chicken, leftover chicken or deli rotisserie chicken.
  • tip 2
    Serve with all your favorite toppings such as chopped green onions, chopped fresh cilantro, thinly sliced radishes, sour cream or Mexican crema.
  • tip 3
    Swap the red enchilada sauce for Old El Paso™ green chile enchilada sauce, if desired.
  • tip 4
    Lining the baking dish with foil makes for easier cleanup and ensures the enchiladas don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
