You probably wouldn’t find these on the menu of your local Mexican joint, but the sauce tops the stuff that comes in the cans in the “world” section of most grocery stores by FAR. These would work really well as a freezer meal.

Start these out by seasoning a few BIG chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and onion powder. After the chicken has browned, I added about 1/2 cup of water into the bottom of the pan and covered the pan to finish the cooking. When the chicken is cooked through, shred it thoroughly. Now make your refried beans. Easy Enchilada Sauce - Thinkarete. This is my go-to enchilada sauce for all my various enchilada dishes.

Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook breasts in the heated skillet until they’re just done. Make sure you don’t overcook them (a hint of pink is ok) because they will cook a second time. Four to five minutes per side should be good unless the breasts are really thick. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside. In the same skillet, with more oil if necessary, add onion, red pepper, cumin, adobo seasoning, oregano and red pepper flakes. Dice up chicken and add it back into the skillet along with any accumulated juices. Set your egg roll wrappers on a work surface. Heat 2-3 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy bottom pot to 350 F.
