Chicken Enchiladas

Two enthusiastic thumbs up for tonight’s dinner!

Give this one a try as soon as you can…  I made it for dinner with the NS BBQ Seasoned Chicken, but it would probably work just as well for lunch using the NS BBQ Pulled Pork.

img_0398Ingredients (for 2 portions)

2 packages of Nutrisystem BBQ Seasoned Chicken

1/4 cup diced onion

1/4 cup diced bell pepper

3/4 cup salsa (divided)

2 cheese strings or cheese sticks

4 small tortillas (I like corn tortillas – just make sure they fit the definition of a SmartCarb!)img_0399


  1. Shred one cheese string;
  2. In a medium bowl, combine shredded cheese string; onions, pepper, chicken and about 1/4 of a cup of salsa;
  3. Spread about 1/4 cup of salsa in the bottom of a baking dish;
  4. Put about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in the centre of each tortilla, as shown above.  Roll and place in baking dish;
  5. Top enchiladas with remaining salsa, and shred the remaining cheese string and scatter over top;
  6. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes.img_0403

I cooked these with a tray full of vegetables that DH had prepared.  I sprayed them with a bit of garlic-flavoured oil, then sprinkled them with some Mrs. Dash seasonings.

By my calculations, this works out to 1 NS Supper entree, 1 SmartCarb (the 2nd tortilla), 1 PowerFuel (cheese string), and 1 Extra (the salsa).  Add another Extra if you want a bit of low fat sour cream.

Buen Provecho!
