Chicken-and-Black Bean Enchiladas
From Southern Living Oct 2006"Very easy to prepare. I added 1 Tbsp Cumin, 2 extra tsps of salt, and 2 tsps of crushed red pepper (ground up) to the mixture before wrapping the enchilada (It gave it GREAT flavor w/o adding too much heat). I also used 12 inch flour tortillas (that's all I had) - I only used 3 of them (filled really full) and put the little bit of remaining filling in the ends of the pan, making it nice and full. It baked up beautifully, and tasted fabulous! My husband LOVED it, making the comment "we can definitely have this again"....I love to hear that! Thanks! I WILL make this again." - dana1105

Grove tips: The six reviewers on Southern Living's website mentioned that this was too hot. We like spicy food, used mild rotel & mild enchilada, but still found this to be rather spicy (but still good!).
It worked better for us an a leftover because....we used the large tortillas so I cut a leftover one into halves and placed each into single serving broiler "boats". I sauteed 1 tb of minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of sliced green onion (the white end only) in 1 tb of butter for 1 minute. I then added 1/2 cup of heavy cream and simmered for about 5 minutes over low heat until thickened. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over each "boat" . Pour cream mixture over each enchilada half and put into the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes, until mixture is bubbling. Top with more shredded cheese and sliced green onion (the green end). It was delicious the second time around!
