 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 1 (4 oz.) can of diced green chilies
 1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed

 8 oz reduced fat cheddar, shredded
Enchilada Sauce
 2 tbsp olive oil

Make the enchilada sauce

Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and whisk together over the heat for one minute.


Stir in the remaining seasonings. Then gradually add in the stock, whisking constantly to remove lumps.


Reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until slightly thickened.

Make the enchiladas:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your enchilada sauce, if making homemade.


In large sauté pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes


Add shredded chicken and green chilies, season with pepper. Sauté for 6-8 minutes, until the chicken is warmed through. Remove from heat and set aside.


To assemble the enchiladas, set up an assembly line including: tortillas, enchilada sauce, beans, chicken mixture, and cheese. Lay out a tortilla, and spread two tablespoons of sauce over the surface of the tortilla. Add beans in a line down the middle of the tortilla, then add in a spoonful of the chicken mixture, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese.


Roll up tortilla and place in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Then spread the remaining enchilada sauce on top of the tortillas, and sprinkle on the remaining shredded cheese.


Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately, garnished with chopped fresh cilantro if desired.
