Chicken Enchiladas


  • ½  tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½  teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½  tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons hot chili powder
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/8 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican blend cheese, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 4 pieces lavash bread
  • 4 tablespoons fat free sour cream

Enchilada sauce:

In a small bowl, blend cocoa powder and sugar and set aside.  Measure out garlic powder, cumin, and cinnamon and set aside.  Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high high heat. Stir in garlic mixture and whisk to blend.  Slowly whisk in chicken broth. Quickly whisk in chili powder, then add flour in small amounts while whisking to avoid clumping. Stir and reduce until sauce thickens. Stir in cocoa powder and sugar until melted and well blended.

Spray a 13×9 glass baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.  In a large skillet, combine corn and black beans.  Add enchilada sauce and bring to a boil.  Turn heat to low and simmer for five to ten minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine chicken with ¾ cup shredded cheese and ½ teaspoon ground cumin.  Fill each piece of lavash with one quarter of chicken mixture and roll.  Arrange in the baking pan with space between each roll.  Pour enchilada sauce over the rolls.  Top with remaining ¼ cup shredded cheese.  Place in oven and broil for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top each enchilada with 1 tablespoon of sour cream before serving.  Makes four servings, 7 WW points per serving.
