An Unexpected Find

I must admit that when I started this Bible Study with my friends, the last thing I expected to find inside was recipes. But, there are some for each week. And, so far, they ones we’ve tried have been YUMMY!!! And, the Bible Study has been super great too! If you have a group of girlfriends that wants to start a Bible Study, this would be a great one!…And, you can’t beat it when it comes with FOOD!

Chicken Enchiladas

6 chicken breasts (boiled 20 minutes; keep 2 cups broth)
2 cups canned chicken broth
8 burrito sized tortillas
8 tablespoons picante sauce
1/2 cup tightly packed cilantro
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon flour (I used LOTS more)
1/2 stick of butter
4 oz. grated Mexican cheese
1 can black beans

In blender, combine cumin, cilantro, sour cream, 1 cup canned chicken broth and 1 cup reserved chicken broth. In skillet or saucepan, heat butter slowly and add flour until smooth. Slowly add 2 remaining cups of chicken broth until smooth and creamy. Add more flour if needed to thicken. Add to sauce in blender to make the sauce.

To make enchiladas: Take each tortilla and fill with 1/2 cup of shredded chicken and 1-2 tablespoons of picante sauce. Add black beans. Roll tortillas and place in 9x13 pan, seam side down. Fill pan with sauce, completely covering the enchiladas. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 30 minutes.
