Mexican Chicken Enchiladas

Let's give your guests some Mexican taste with these chicken enchiladas.


  • Cooking oil (6 tbsp)
  • Chicken breast (500 grams, cut into small pieces)
  • Garlic paste (1 tbsp)
  • Cumin powder (1 tsp)
  • Red chili powder (1 tsp)
  • Paprika powder (1 tsp)
  • Salt (½ tbsp)
  • All-purpose flour (2 tbsp)
  • Tomato puree (2 tbsp)
  • Water (4 cups)
  • Chicken powder (1 tbsp)
  • Mexican 3 cheese blend (1.5 cups and an additional 1 cup for later)
  • Tortillas
  • Avocado, sour cream, and salsa for garnishing


Heat 2 tbsp cooking oil in a pan and add chicken breasts. Cover and cook on medium-low flame. The chicken will release its moisture, and you'll cook it until all of the water dries up.

Meanwhile, take another saucepan and heat 4 tbsp of cooking oil and 1 tbsp of garlic paste for 30 seconds before adding anything else. Next, add red chili powder, cumin powder, paprika, salt, and cook for 20 seconds while stirring fast. Now add flour and tomato puree and go for a minute.

Then, add 4 cups of water slowly while whisking continuously. Put chicken powder, mix well, cover, and cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes. When the chicken breast cubes are all dried up, put 1.5 cups of the prepared sauce there. Let both chicken and sauce cook for 5 more minutes.

Take both off the stove and pour half of the sauce into a tray. Use the chicken to fill tortillas (2 tbsp each). Place the tortillas in the tray on top of the sauce and pour the remaining sauce on top. Put a good amount of cheese and bake at 375°F for 25 minutes or until the bubbles are formed. Garnish with salsa, sour cream, and avocado cubes and present it to your guests.
