Instructions
  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread 3 tbs beans, 1/8 cup cheese & 2 oz chicken onto tortilla. Wrap it up into a burrito and place it in a baking pan with sides. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
  3. *Note: I use “Mission Carb Balance” soft taco tortillas but you can use regular tortillas, whole grain tortillas, wraps, etc. Any of them work but I actually like the consistency of the low carb tortillas because they get really soft. That’s just me! Same with the cheese. You can go with fat free cheese if you like that to make it even lower fat.
  4. *Oh- if you're short on time (and this REALLY saves some time)- just buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and use the meat from that. I don't use any of the skin, because that's the fatty part. Just use the meat inside and shred it up/tear it up a bit.
  5. Pour enchilada sauce over it until all of the tortillas are covered. Sprinkle some cojita cheese on top.
  6. Cover pan with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. *Also, I served mine with sliced mango & pineapple, topped with lime juice & tajin! So fresh & healthy! (If you’re not familiar with tajin, it is basically a chili powder/lime/salt seasoning that is great on fruits and veggies!
  8. It is usually sold in the produce section or in the check-out area at Mexican markets.)
