Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients
  

  • 8 flour tortillas I used the low carb ones
  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 Envy Apple diced
  • ½ sweet onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno diced. Seeds removed if desired
  • 15 oz red enchilada sauce 1 can
  • 6 oz shredded cheese I used the creamy Mexican variety
  • Olive Oil spray or 1 tsp cooking oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Spray 9x13 baking dish and set aside.
  • Prepare apples and vegetables.
  • Spray medium pan with olive oil spray and warm over medium heat.
  • Add diced onion and cook until translucent - approx 2-3 mins.
  • Add diced Envy apple and jalapeno.
  • Saute until peppers start to soften, approx 2-3 mins.
  • Add in cooked chicken and mix well and mixture is heated throughout.
  • Lay out 8 tortillas on the kitchen counter. I like to lay them all out at once, it just seems easier!
  • Sprinkle a little cheese near one side of each tortilla.
  • Add the chicken and apple mixture to the same side as the cheese of each tortilla.
  • Using your hands, tightly roll each tortilla and place it seam side down into the prepared baking dish.
  • Top with the red enchilada sauce.
