The Secret Ingredient

Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Place dried chiles in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Boil for 15 minutes or until chiles are soft. Reserve water.

Step 2

Place chiles, 1 cup reserved chile water, ½ cup onion, evaporated milk, media crema, garlic and bouillon in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Step 3

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until heated through.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 5

Dip tortillas in sauce one by one. Place them on a separate plate and fill with 2 tablespoons shredded chicken and 1 tablespoon beans. Fold in half; place in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken and beans. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas. Sprinkle with cheese.

Step 6

Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Step 7

Top each serving with lettuce and remaining ½ cup onion.
