Easy Weeknight Dinner - Chipotle Chicken Enchilada Bake
I made this easy, delicious recipe for dinner tonight and it was amazing! The chicken is cooked in enchilada sauce, so there is no added fat…I did add a little olive oil although the recipe didn’t call for it. It’s layered with corn tortillas so it’s gluten free. It’s topped with cheese, scallions and cilantro and I served it with guacamole, salsa and sour cream! Delicious, healthy and sooo easy! The perfect weeknight dinner! Just add a salad and you’ve got a fabulous meal!

One thing that’s really helpful in getting meals on the table quickly is to have a well stocked kitchen! Here are a few basic items that you may need. I use my cast iron skillet almost every time I prepare a meal and think they are the best for cooking food evenly. I have 3 large ones and a smaller one that belonged to my mother. This one is on my wishlist because I can just picture a cookie cake baked in it!
We gobbled this up and loved it. It’s so easy and perfect for a night when you don’t have a lot of time. You could even assemble it early and throw it in the oven 30 minutes before you want to eat! What is your go-to weeknight dinner? Let me know in the comment box below!
