Healthy Chicken Enchilada Recipe

Servings: 4 people


  • 1 jar Mesa de Vida Smoky Latin healthy cooking sauce
  • 1 lb diced chicken breast or thighs Substitute meat, veggies, beans, grains of your choice
  • Salt and hot sauce to taste
  • Tortillas of your choice corn, whole wheat, gluten free, grain free, etc.
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
  • Toppings of your choice such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, sliced avocado, sliced onion, olives, fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tb honey or agave nectar
  • 1 tsp white vinegar or apple cider vinegar


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat, when hot add your meat and half of the jar of Mesa de Vida Smoky Latin healthy cooking sauce, plus salt and hot sauce to taste. Stirring often, simmer until the chicken is just cooked through and you have a thick, rich sauce.
  • Divide the filling among your tortillas of choice. Roll and place into a baking dish.
  • To make the sauce simply add the honey (or agave), vinegar and a pinch of salt to taste to the rest of the Smoky Latin inspired cooking sauce, replace the lid and shake to combine, or whisk to combine. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas. (You can also make this before and instead of pouring the sauce on the tortillas you can dip each tortilla into the sauce.)
  • Top with shredded cheese to taste.
  • Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove the cover and turn the heat up to 450 degrees. Bake for 5-10 more minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Enjoy!
