Make this “Cook Yourself Thin” recipe. Serves 4
Calories per serving: 456
2 roasted poblano peppers, peeled
1 bunch of cilantro leaves, washed, stems discarded
1 lime, zested and juiced
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 corn tortillas
1 cup canned nonfat refried beans
3 cups of leftover roast chicken, shredded
3/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese, such as Mexican-style, Monterey Jack or cheddar
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Lightly oil a 9-x-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or 1 teaspoon olive oil. In a food processor or a blender, combine the roasted and peeled peppers, cilantro, garlic, lime zest and juice, chicken stock, salt and pepper, and puree until smooth.
3. Spread 1/3 cup of the sauce in the prepared baking dish. Top with a layer of 6 overlapping tortillas. Spread refried beans evenly over the tortillas. Top the beans with the shredded chicken mixture, and add 1/3 of the sauce, followed by the remaining 6 tortillas. Pour the remaining sauce over the tortillas. Cover with foil.
4. Bake the enchiladas until they begin to bubble on the sides, about 20 minutes. Remove the foil; sprinkle cheese and scallions on top. Continue baking until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Top with cilantro and serve with lime wedges
Notes: I poached my chicken with onions, bellpeppers, solano peppers, a cut up lime, garlic and then my chicken was seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic salt, seasoning salt and paprika. I poached until the chicken fell off the bone. Also, instead of re-fried beans I used black beans and I also added pepper jack cheese with cheddar cheese with some olives. If your beans are warm they are easier to spread…(mental note)

Chyna thoughts….Are you experiencing true liberty everyday? are you indeed “off the chain”? Your chains may not be visible, but they still have the power to keep you stuck in the same place and space. TAKE YOUR LID OFF….assess your private thoughts, associations and choices. when you are surrounded by the weak, you will begin to believe that victory is not possible. Remember, God is still exceeding expectations. So, don’t get comfortable in your chains/hindrances. Break them off…No more chains…BE FREE!!!! WHO THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED
